The operative word in that question is “doing” The Gospel of Jesus Christ turns on that word. The law is about “doing”. Grace is about “Being”. Folks who work hard to be a “good Christian” miss the message of Christ’s ministry. (By the way, there’s no such thing as a “good” Christian.) For some (I was […]
