Cheap Grace?

By Paul Stanley

March 8, 2017

Nowadays when I open my social media page, I seem to be inundated with articles and posts in regards to the current hot button issues in our country such as homosexuality, abortion or immigration. Considering my circle of friends, that is not abnormal and often times we do not always agree on some things, but we generally exercise liberty and grace in the non-essentials (not that any of the above mentioned topics are a non-essential).

What bothers me most about many of the recent post is the push for grace in the light of these particular issues. It is not grace in the sense we are trying to introduce folks who support said issues  to Jesus, it is this idea of a grace that instructs us, that if we want to be like Jesus, we just accept those folks and love them and do not tell them they are wrong or that they are in violation of scripture.

This concept of grace is most concerning when it comes to the topic of Islam. Many Christians somehow have drawn the conclusion that Islam and Christianity can exist hand in hand and peacefully co-exist. A good Christian, we are told would not tell another human being that their religion is wrong and that they are leaning toward the fires of hell.

I guess I am intolerant, Islamophobic, xenophobic, hate-mongering, homophobic, right-wing wacko. (You can fill in more if you like), but I have a few essential and non-negotiable as a Christian. First, the bible is ALWAYS true. The word of God never changes. If it says adultery, fornication, homosexuality, and the fact that ones sex defines if they are male or female; I agree. I am not changing my mind on those issues.

If my bible says that Jesus is THE ONLY way to God, I agree. I will never accept the concept of walking hand in hand with a group of Christ deniers. There is just no way to heaven without Jesus. The problem is that if we accept this new version of grace, we are pridefully thinking that we know better than God. In our attempt to be cool and relevant, we have set scripture apart and have conformed to the way of the world instead of being transformed by the renewing of our minds in order to be like Jesus. To tolerate sin and think that it is okay is nothing like Jesus. He would never do that and scripture does not describe that type of Jesus.

If we allow just one seed of doubt or denial of scripture get into our theology, satan then has a foothold to keep bringing up more and more things that you should probably look the other way until you look nothing like Jesus or the church that he expects us to be. No one will be able to stand before him in judgement and expect the outcome to be good when we have allowed people to think that things that scripture clearly says is wrong to be right, or that we are okay walking hand in hand with blatant Christ deniers when the bible says to have absolutely nothing (outside of intentional evangelism) to do with them.

Just remember, salvation IS free, but it was brought at a very expensive price. Perhaps it is time we treated it as such.

Going to graduate school was a positive decision for me. I enjoyed the coursework, the presentations, the fellow students, and the professors. And since my company reimbursed 100% of the tuition, the only cost that I had to pay on my own was for books and supplies. Otherwise, I received a free master’s degree. All that I had to invest was my time.
