Law or Grace? Day 1
Tightrope Christianity is what I call it. Trying to balance law and grace puts such pressure on us to perform for God. And when we fall off the straight line we feel so guilty! Some get real good at walking the straight line and then demand others do the same only to hide it if they fall off.
Study with me the book of Galatians where Paul is directly addressing this issue with the church. He is talking to gentile believers (Non-Jewish believers) that have been persuaded to follow some Jewish customs. Paul says that is no gospel at all!
And although circumcision is not today's topic of debate, maybe tithing is??
Let's set it straight: We cannot earn favor with God (or blessings) by any means other than faith in Christ!
