Isn't it both, and more? I believe Christ has saved me from my sinful
condition (original sin), from my actual sins, and even from my
potential sins by subduing me to Himself. In other words, Christ has
not only saved me from my sins (original and actual), He has also
saved (and is still saving) me from ~myself~ through sanctification.
He is Prophet, Priest, ~and~ King. He is saving me from the power of
sin, the penalty of sin, and eventually, He will save me from the
presence of sin.
I don't have anything to say about CS Lewis though. :)
