Questions of ultimate concerns

Protestants shun questions about ultimate concerns. They cut short inquiry by saying Believe and you will be saved! Implied is Don’t ask me any more. That of course brings up the question, Saved for what? What is your ultimate concern?

Is your ultimate concern purely personal: that you will not be annihilated or tortured? Or is it for all of humanity (for God so loved the world)? And is it beyond the double negative (not torture), toward something positive, like growth and love and creativity?
