Sometimes we forget who God really is and the power he has over our lives and others. Many people turn to God in times of need or grief, forgetting the vital importance to ask how you can serve and not be served. Discover the significance of why having the right motivation is key when asking God for salvation. With over 2 billion people claiming to be Christians, are they being misled regarding their redemption? Using passages from the Bible, we examine if our incentives to carry out our good deeds will not bring us the rewards we seek in the eyes of God. What is God's view of self-esteem and forgiveness? A God-Centered View of Salvation by Allen M. Steely will teach you the true meaning of salvation and how you can serve God while elevating yourself to the highest form of spirituality.
A God-Centered View of Salvation by Allen M. Steely truly challenges our steadfast beliefs on salvation and why your well-intended actions may be working against you. You really have to read this book with an open mind as you may disagree with a lot of statements the author makes. But using passages from the Bible, the author makes the case for true salvation very intelligently. I believe the intention of this book is not to strive to become the perfect person but to adjust your belief system so your motivations and deeds align correctly with what God expects from us. There are many interesting sections throughout which made perfect sense and a viewpoint I had not considered before. I especially enjoyed the section regarding who is responsible for the bad events that occur in our lives, the real reason we need to forgive, and why our good deeds are, at their core, quite selfish. A very thought-provoking book indeed.
