LAW and GRACE: Getting it right.
The Jews in their arrogance mistook the LAW for legalism instead of guidance to divine truth;
The Church in her excitement has also mistaken GRACE for libertinism instead of enablement for purity.
Christ’s GRACE grants undeserved LIBERATION from sin, self and Satan and also grants privileged ACCESS into the Spirit’s indwelling and leading for purity; however, Grace forbids unreserved license and carnality (8:9; Rom 6:15 and 8:1-9; Gal 2:17 and 5:13,16-18; 1Pet 2:16).
Apparently, the Church in her euphoria is unaware that Christ’s GRACE when spurned, brings GREATER JUDGMENT than the LAW (John 15:22-24; Heb 10:28-31; 2Pet 2:17-20).
(20) Brothers, stop being children in your thinking. In evil be infants, but in thinking be adults.
