The dangers of grace – by Terry Virgo

I wanted to return to sharing 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 thats 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.”
