Elders, Grace and Heresy

I am grateful that God in His wisdom jusrifies sinners. Not sin. ~ www.CrossroadJunction.com

Some use grace to justify sin. Others, to repent.

Last week, several local leaders openly intervened – after private efforts failed – to deal with a few individuals who were trying to dominate a particular fellowship with their false, hyper-grace heresy.

In essence, they kept using grace to excuse open, willful sin in their lives – thus abusing grace, setting a bad example, and tempting others to join them in flagrant disobedience.

Although they refused to repent, fortunately they decided to move on.

Real elders care enough to protect God’s people, rather than let wolves roam among them.

May God raise up more caring shepherds among us.

  1. “Those who have been born into God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s life is in them. So they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God.” (1 John 3:9) A Christian lifestyle produces fruit in keeping with repentance (Matthew 3:8). The church suffers when sin is excused. I commend the work of these elders in the protection of the church.
