Lead[edit]

I notice some edit warring going on regarding the lead - the current version is much better. In Christianity, at least, redemption has very little to do with people who "overcome their shortcomings and achieve the moral positions exemplified in their faith."

I don't think that was edit warring at all; I think that was development of a consensus by continuous tweaking, and that all participating editors agree with the outcome. bd2412 T 13:31, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
I think the current lead paragraph accurately reflects the content of the article: "Redemption as a theological concept is found in several different religions. In Buddhist theology it encompasses a release from worldly desires. As a Christian theological term, it refers to the deliverance of Christians from sin.[1] In Judaism, redemption can refer both to the Exodus from slavery in ancient Egypt, and deliverance from exile."Knobbly (talk) 22:22, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
