Topic: What are the religions of Kinyn?
1 Corinthians 8:5-6 (NASB):
For even if there are so-called gods whether in heaven or on earth, as indeed there are many gods and many lords, yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him.
Ages ago, an Elf brought news of a Savior to Kinyn. This Savior, the only son of the God over all, died for any who would believe, whether human or Elf, fairy or goblin. Believers who have put their faith in the Savior are called the Redeemed. Those who are able make a pilgrimage to a Reclaimed temple and learn more from the Mitsans, monks and nuns who have dedicated their lives to the Savior.
Sadly, most of the people of Kinyn believe in false gods, such as the gods of the sea and the sky, or even the leader or god of a town. The Redeemed know that some of these gods are imaginary. Others are real in the sense that they have magic and have asserted their authority. None have the power to save creatures from their wrongdoing, nor can they grant eternal life.
