What’s So Hyper About Grace? | Podcast with D.R. Silva
This week I was privileged to have on the podcast Dan Silva, a fellow blogger and author of the fairly new book, It’s All About Jesus: What They Never Told You in Church.
I enjoyed talking to Dan. I’ve been following his site for a few years, along with his Facebook page and have enjoyed the posts and articles he’s written. I have even more respect for him after hearing more about his journey from Sunday churchianity, to burn out, to a renewed passion for God and the message of his love.
Check out this week’s episode and hear us discuss whether the message of grace truly is a license to sin as some claim ‘grace teachers’ are proclaiming. We also discuss a recent article our regular guest Stephen Crosby wrote that’s been getting some buzz on social media.
But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet. For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified.
And the Holy Spirit also bears witness to us; for after saying,
“This is the covenant that I will make with them
after those days, declares the Lord:
I will put my laws on their hearts,
and write them on their minds,”
then he adds,
“I will remember their sins and their lawless deeds no more.”
Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer any offering for sin. (Hebrews 10:12-18, ESV)
Has Jesus forgiven our future sins or not?
Does grace automatically lead to licentiousness? Or is the following true: grace is not permission to sin, but it’s permission to live free from sin once and for all.
We had lots of good stuff to talk about, and this is most certainly not going to be the last time Dan is on the show, so make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss the next time.
