Greasy grace? God forbid!


Stop living under “Greasy Grace”... Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid... Greasy grace is just like greasy fast food. You want it, you love it but it is bad for you and it will kill you. What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid... shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. When God’s Word says “God Forbid” we ought to listen to what He says to forbid... It is sad that in today’s modern church the focus is so much more on God’s grace in order to justify being more like the world (sin) then actually reverencing and living within God’s holy boundaries which, when we do so, we truly provide Him glory. A genuine believer would take joy in this outcome. Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law. Romans 3:31 Here is the condensed version again for emphasis. Following after this is the passage in its entirety for context... What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid... shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Romans 6:1-15 The following is for those who want to completely ignore God’s law and claim to live under His grace while redefining apart from God what good is in order to justify their sin(s): What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet. But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead. For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died. And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death. For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me. Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good. Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful. Romans 7:7-13 If it was not for the law we would not know God’s standard of goodness. Rest assured His goodness is far above any standard we can ever devise. God forbid that we not listen to God when He says God forbid...

It is important to remember that greasy hands do not make it into heaven despite what the false teachings of the day want to tell you. God's Word says: Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. Psalm 24:3-5 Disclaimer: It was understood at the time of this writing that there will come the legalists who are legalistically against legalism. Relax, it is not legalistic to obey God...

Holiness or Sinfulness?

“Holiness” and “Holy” are perhaps the most under-emphasized and rarely used words in the pulpits of modern Christianity. If and when they are referred to, they are typically watered down by man-made d
