Here is this week’s quote from the book Pure Grace:
“Religion -not real Christianity- is and always has been in the behavior modification and sin management business. It is so lucrative and so firmly entrenched in the Church that it will take a second Great Reformation and a revelation of no less importance than Luther’s to correct this great and spiritually murderous lie.” (Pg. 28 Pure Grace)
Let’s Talk Grace
Someone has said, “There are only two kinds of religion. The religions of human achievement or Divine accomplishment.” One cannot have it both ways! Either man performs to satisfy the demands of a deity or the deity performs that which man cannot do for himself. Obviously the latter is true Christianity. The truth of the finished work of Christ is the single hope of a truly transformed life!
