I love it when I am teaching about grace, and someone in the class objects by saying, “But if what you are saying is true, then why can’t I just go sin all I want?” When I hear this question, I know I have been properly teaching grace. If you do not hear this question when you teach about grace, you are probably not teaching grace.
I hold to radical, outrageous, shocking, scandalous, limitless grace. I believe that grace is so free, that yes, you can just go sin all you want. (Before you get upset at me for contradicting Paul in Romans 6:1, read the post.)
Grace is outrageous and scandalous. God extends it out of his love, simply because He is gracious. He would have extended it even if Jesus had not died. The death of Jesus on the cross was because of God’s grace; not the grounds for it.
Since the gospel of grace is opposite to the way the rest of life works, many people have great trouble accepting it. The offer of eternal is absolutely free, but this also makes it difficult to believe.
