716. Watch Out for the Bait and Switch

It sounded great when you first heard the advertisement from Church Inc … salvation offered free by grace as a gift. But later they’ll say you missed the fine print and that believing in Jesus will now cost you everything (cha-ching!). The religious business lured you with a free product promotion which is now apparently out of stock as they suggest that it’s up to you to achieve a certain standard in order to maintain right standing with God.

The truth is that the gospel has no fine print, because it’s not based upon the letter (works), but it revolves around who we’ve already become by the blood of Jesus Christ and His finished work. We produce nothing … we simply bear the fruit of the Spirit who lives with us.

715. Grace Is Never Dangerous

The bad news police who are established in a legalistic mindset will caution believers in Christ that too much teaching about God’s grace will lead to an unhealthy and perilous plight. Their tangled view of the testaments wrongly assumes grace needs to be balanced with law.

We’ve been supplied with an abundance of grace for a reason and it has no connection to law or a rules-based religion.

714. Sin Increased Under Law - Grace Abounded More Through Jesus

Hollow religion says a written code of commandments is needed in order to reduce sin and increase morality. There is just one problem with this approach … it’s the precise opposite of what Scripture reveals to us.

The law came for a purpose - to increase the trespass … not to reduce it. It’s only by grace and the gift of righteousness found in Jesus Christ that will allow for us to reign in life.

713. The Dangers of Mixing Law and Grace (Part 3)

Legalists who believe God’s grace needs to be balanced with a law of works will instinctively jump to the misguided conclusion that we grace renegades are encouraging people to break commandments from the Old Covenant and that sinning doesn’t matter. They are stuck in a religious trap which assumes law decreases sin and that grace inspires people to sin. It’s the precise opposite of what Scripture has revealed through the gospel. There is a reason why sin has no dominion over us in Christ, and the law has nothing to do with it.

“For some men, straying from these things, have turned aside to fruitless discussion, wanting to be teachers of the Law, even though they do not understand either what they are saying or the matters about which they make confident assertions” (1 Timothy 1:6-7).

712. The Dangers of Mixing Law and Grace (Part 2)

If you’ve ever attended church for any length of time, it’s likely you’ve been taught to buy into a belief system that has blended law and grace together. Your mindset has been trained to filter the Bible through this perspective.

This approach to the gospel is an insult to the blood of Jesus and the finished work of the cross. It sprouts self-righteousness and does not lead to a greater knowledge of the truth.

711. The Dangers of Mixing Law and Grace (Part 1)

The majority of Sunday sermons have established a mindset within believers that the gospel is based upon old covenant law being merged together with new covenant grace. Some things are not compatible and just don’t mix well together. The wrong combination of various liquids will either resist each other and refuse to blend or could even create toxicity. Law and grace are not compatible with each other and were never meant to be commingled.

“For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace” (Romans 6:14).

710. Born Identity: We Are Heirs

An inheritance is not received by one’s commitment. It is not something that has been earned by working for it. It’s gifted. It’s not based upon law, but upon promise.

In order for a will (or covenant) to take effect, there has to be the death of the one who made it. Jesus died in order for us to receive an eternal inheritance, with an unbreakable seal - the Holy Spirit of promise.
