A question of grace

Do not abuse  ‘grace’

from Pastor Mel

A few years back this term “greasy grace” was frequently thrown about in the Christian community.

It referred to the idea of God’s grace being abused like the bloke who goes out willfully sinning during the week, gets forgiveness from the priest at confession and then he’s off again.

Abuse of grace is certainly warned against in the Bible e.g. “Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves,” says 1Peter 2:16.

Similarly, Paul in Galatians 5:13 warns: “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.”

The fact of the matter is we all fail as believers somewhere along the way, and we struggle to overcome bad habits, thoughts and actions, so we certainly need grace, which is central to Christian living.

Learning to live in that grace is a profound, ongoing spiritual experience, usually found when our focus is off ourselves and doing things to serve others, or when we are honest and open before God with our brokenness and seeking His help.

Until next time …

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

    Sadly in Australia we have very few Christians. This is why our country is collapsing under the weight of satanism, atheism and the insanity it causes.
    Proverbs chapter 1 explains the folly of madness and the evil of insanity.

    Many people including many children, disabled, elderly continue suffering whilst the masses blindly follow the anti christ system that God said he is bringing too ruination.
