A prominent Christian social researcher found about 55% of all Americans believe they can earn salvation. Yet we know from Ephesians Chapter 2:8 that “it is by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not from yourselves, it is a gift of God--not by works, so that no one can boast.”
To believe that you can earn salvation and eternal life is to become a slave to works; a slave to deserving something from God. If you believe this, you are not free; you are a slave to your own belief system and to works for your salvation.
