Former Pastor at medium sized church in New Jersey.
My spiritual world was rocked by reading Martin Luther's commentary on the Book of Galatians. The depth and dimension of God's grace is awe striking. I believe most people are afraid of just exactly how free we are through the sacrifice of Christ.
My ministry today is to teach Christians the proper roll of the Law of Moses in God's plan for the redemption of mankind. Through a better understanding of how the law does not apply to us anymore, the Christian is now free to love his neighbor as himself and that means no judgment. There is no judgment because there is now no "standard" (read: the law) in which to judge him since as Colossians 2 tells us that the law was nailed to the cross and taken out of the way!!!!
If you are interested in my viewpoint on grace, please see my book Reforming Grace available on Amazon. I also wrote a fiction that deals with some the tenants of grace (see Time Demon Epilogue).
