Salvation simply means deliverance from sin and it's consequences, believed by Christians to be brought about by faith in Christ. Salvation is a closeness to God, it gives one the opportunities to enjoy God's blessings but it doesn't give us the opportunity to dictate for God.
Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”
When you are saved by faith, you have access to God not for selfish reasons or to boast. The problem of most churches around the world is simple, and that is because they have refused to preach about salvation, they have failed to discipline people with the word of God and in action, most churches don't care about how people dress to the house of God hence they pay tithes and offering.
Christians are salts of the world, but the salt is loosing it taste by not practicing what it preaches, how will a church preach against fornication and adultery yet it encourages indecent dressing in the house of God.
It's high time Christian leaders around the world woke up and lead the church rightly, they should be able to teach humility, forgiveness, love, patience, care, hard work, principles of sources and not encouraging Christians to give one dollar with the hope of getting one hundred dollars in return. God is not a magician, he knows our needs and won't fail to provide if we worship him in truth and holiness.
Salvation dose not mean that God should give answer to an illegal activities, Salvation is personal, it caution us from doing evil here on earth, Salvation is the best gift any parent can give it's children not money. Let our purpose of going to church be right with God and every other things will be ours because it is the key for our breakthrough in life.
