The Dangers of Grace

Written by

I wanted to share some more of Terry’s video interview clips. This one introduces us to some of the dangers of teaching about grace and how to handle them. Here are a few excerpts to whet your appetite:

“The Bible is not ignorant of the dangers…it says don’t let grace be an opportunity for the flesh. Don’t kid yourself. . .You could say “I’m free I could become an addict again” but that's not freedom in Biblical terms. . . Freedom is I don’t choose to sin. . . Grace actually changes your identity . . . Grace makes us accepted, but also helps us to live the new life. . . We must not see discipline as legalism. Legalism is doing stuff to try to earn points….Disciple is I choose to do it because I want to accomplish, I am not doing it to impress.”
