about the name
saving faith describes a belief in Jesus by which God rescues Christians from evil and eternal suffering and liberates us to love him and other people as he intended
saving face is a central tenet of Chinese culture which seeks to preserve the honor of one’s family and one’s community
/seɪ.vɪŋ.feɪs/ is how both are pronounced:
<saving face> in standard American English,
<saving faith> in English accented with Chinese
God is doing amazing things among Chinese people. As we reconcile our culture and his teachings, we realize it is only the grace of God received by saving faith that truly saves face.
