Christian, that was a great answer you gave, thank you so much for your impute on the Word of God. I for one am so happy God put you on this website as I am happy about so many who don't water down the Gospel of Grace.
---Mark_V. on 12/30/10


There is only ONE gospel: It is the good news of the salvation of man through the Son of God.
Call it gospel of grace, gospel of salvation, gospel of the kingdom, or whatever. It is the very same gospel, and was first preached in Genesis 3

Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed, it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

My understanding-Grace defines God is Love.
Man who is spirit-has proven also in flesh to be foolish(dust-clay-adom).Gen 2:7,Ecc12:7,Jer1:4-5,Eph 1:3-5,Rom9:11-23,1Cor 15(all)
God being True-Just and Fair provided the Perfect plan for Completion- Salvation for His children Ez18:4.
Those He foreknew stood/stand with Him-(elect) have been chosen for a purpose-are justified Mat 20:16,Rom 8.
And Because He is fair -
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that Whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
2Cor5(all)-To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them,hath committed unto us the Word of Reconciliation

The Gospel or good news is that we are saved by Grace alone. That all our sins can be forgiven so we can have a clean slate.

Also that we can be new creatures in JESUS.
---Samuel on 12/29/10


The Gospel of Grace can easily be summed up because of the limited use of words allocated by ChristiaNet, in these verses,

"For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth, As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated." Romans 9:11,13

Jacob's salvation was by grace because God loved him, period. And in case you want to look for a reason as to why God loved him, according to verse 11, forget it, you ain't going to find it. God simply declares He loved Jacob only and never Esau. And this is the same to all the elected Christians.

This is the Gospel of Grace.

---lionel on 12/27/10


Eloy,
I like your last answer to Lionel...
---duane on 12/27/10




To answer the original question the gospel of grace is a way in which Christians can justify sin and abominable works rather than call upon the grace of God when they have failed after a full effort to please the Lord in every aspect of their lives.
It is a gospel that allows heresy and abomination and will have to be answered for at the judgment seat of Christ.
The covenant of grace was a blessing man twisted and perverted.
---Frank on 12/27/10


God is not only a God of JUSTICE but He is also a God of GRACE. According to JUSTICE sin must be judged and punished. According to GRACE sin can be pardoned and forgiven *Psalm 103:3- Ephesians 1:7.

The wonderful truth of the gospel is that God can save by Grace WITHOUT COMPROMISING HIS JUSTICE.

God remains JUST because He poured out His judgment and wrath upon Christ and at the same time He is able to graciously JUSTIFY the sinner who trusts in His Son

**Romans 3:26, 4:5! Praise God!
---kathr4453 on 12/27/10


lionel, when a person is born-again there is no sin and no deception of being sinless, because in truth there is no sin for the born-again new creation from Christ is just that, a brand new heart, Christ takes out the stony sin heart and replaces this with a new fleshy holy heart in which he dwells: "If you say that you have sin when you do not, then you are a liar and the truth is not in you." I John 3:20.
---Eloy on 12/26/10


Grace,contain no human effort what so ever.
Eloy,you are right about one that have not receive salvation not entering Heaven.Any one who have turned to God in repentance was found gilty of sin,sentenced to death and God's grace pardon him.
He have been given eternal life.
If you say you have no sin You deceive yourself.
Donna right on.
---lionel on 12/26/10


I error in your relgion of works but not in God's regilion of grace...Rom 4:2 For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory, but not before God.
Rom 11:5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
Rom 11:6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.
---steve_rem-7000 on 12/26/10


Steven rem 7000, let me ask you a question based on your last post....If one is saved by Grace thrugh faith , is it then necessary to BEG GOD for mercy after one is saved? That seems to be a contradiction of thought.

Some believe we are saved by Grace through faith PLUS begging for mercy to be forgiven.

I believe when one is saved by Grace through faith they have REVEIVED God's mercy, being God's wrath was put on Jesus Christ for the forgivness of sin to those who receive His Gift that He died in or place.

I'm not saved/forgiven because I beg for mercy. That's not salvation. I'm saved /forgiven because Jesus PAID the debt I could not pay.

Your thoughts from a calvin perspective please?

mima, I suggest you keep the verses and pieces of verses in their context rather than extract them and tailor them to support your sin. As long as the sinner continues in sin they are at enemity with the cross and are God's adversary which he will not honor nor will he give them grace, but they rightly receive his wrath and condemnation. Thus says the Lord God, "No one whom is living in sin will sit at my table, says the Lord, nor will they come into my house, neither will they enter into my Kingdom: for only they whom have made their garments clean, and have put away all sin and are clothed with my blood, and are filled with mine Spirit will I receive into mine family and into my fold."

steve, you err, "It is finished" means only one thing in this passage, Christ finished his mission that he came to earth to do, And Now You Must also finish your mission, and take up your own cross and follow after Christ. Christ did not finish your mission, for you must finish your own mission, and I must finish mine and each soul must finish their own mission with Christ the Leader and our perfect example personally shown unto us for us to follow.
---Eloy on 12/25/10


#1. "It is Finished" Christ did it "all" whom is the author and finisher of the faith. Heb.12:2 for thern is the righteosuness of God revealed from faith to faith the justified "will' live by faith Rom1:16-
Jesus's faihtfullness to fullfill "ALL" thatGod the Father required for righteousness, WHICH enables the father to be both just and justifer for those whom Chirst came, whom believe.

grace is unmerited favor.something that we dont deserved.so God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--(Ephesians 2:8) indeed we cannot earned God's love.all our good works are filty rugs in the eyes of God (Isaiah 64:6)
---mj on 12/25/10


Elroy your statement"This damnable heresy doctrine of workless grace is from the pit," goes directly against the Bible.
Ephesians 2:8-9,"8-For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

9-Not of works, lest any man should boast"

Any offering on our part would be works!!!!
---mima on 12/25/10


God requires ALL from us, ALL. You must take up your own cross and follow after Jesus. And if you cannot give him your all, then your offering is as worthless as Cain's. This damnable heresy doctrine of workless grace is from the pit, and all whom follow after this false doctrine will likewise fall into the pit.

kath4453---//TRUE FAITH IS ACTUALLY REPENTANCE believe it or not. Believing is not just head knowledge.//

Exactly! When you truly realize the price that Christ paid for you for you... because of His GRACE, not your own effort... it cannot help but bring you to repentance.
Repentance without faith is like a socially "required" apology that means nothing.
---Donna66 on 12/24/10

Donna, all lies. The truth is, the workless are condemned, and ONLY DOERS are saved: "Not all they that say to me, Lord, Lord, will enter into the kingdom of heaven, rather the one that Does the commands of Father of me which is in heaven."
---Eloy on 12/24/10


Continued---No, nothing that we do merit's God's Grace. That's why John 3:16 says.. whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have ever lasting life. God's GRACE has required very little of us... and very much from His Son! All we need to do is to believe i.e. trust, in HIM.
---Donna66 on 12/24/10


Donna66, The truth stands, and I care not if you dis the truth. Only the repentant receive grace, and the dissers receive wrath.
---Eloy on 12/24/10


Eloy--//God's grace is not unmerited, but always conditional upon ones repentance and obedience//Sorry, but I respectfully disagree.

How does "repentance" and "obedience" make us deserving of (i.e.merit) eternal life? Are these qualities SO righteous that they cancel out a lifetime of sin? Is God SO impressed by our repentance and our feeble efforts to obey that He rewards us with Salvation.
To believe this is to diminish the importance of Christ's sacrifice for sin.

The work of Jesus on the cross is complete. We can add nothing to it. We can NEVER, by our own efforts, merit God's favor. That is what GRACE is, He makes us sons and daughters without our coming anywhere near deserving it!

Rom 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
John 1:16-17 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. For the law was given by Moses, [but] grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
Rom 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Rom 4:3-5 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
---micha9344 on 12/24/10


One must first understand what Grace means - it's the working of God in a man to fulfill His purpose, as John declares "A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven." (John 3:27)

Common grace is where God works in all mankind - "the man that executeth my counsel from a far country" (Isaiah 46:11) confirming John 3:27. This does not save the man from his sins.

The Gospel of Grace is special grace, where God works only on those whom He has elected before the foundations of the world (see Ephesians 1:4-12). And through His Grace, he gives His elect faith (see Ephesians 2:8,9) and justifies him through it (Romans & Galatians 3,4) rewarding him with eternal life in Christ.
---christan on 12/24/10


God's grace is not unmerited, but always conditional upon ones repentance and obedience. God did not make the very real and horrific lake of fire and brimstone in vain. When a person sins they have broken the law and must pay the consequences, but when the sinner fesses up to their sin and genuinely repents to God and makes amends, then and only then will God extend his grace: but when the sinner fesses not and continues in their sin, then there is no restoration nor fellowship, and God rightly extends his wrath and not his grace to that law-breaker. God gives grace to the righteous, and wrath to the wicked. And when the wicked repents, they will receive forgiveness and grace.
---Eloy on 12/24/10


leslie---//repentance voids out what Jesus did on the cross//?? What does this mean? We repent BECAUSE of what Jesus did on the cross. Otherwise repentence would be useless.

Rom 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
Rom 3:23 since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Rom 3:24 they are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus,

Grace is the giving of a GIFT. The gift of salvation is what, unworthy though we are, we receive from Chist
when we ask Him for it in faith.

Leslie,
You seem to define repentance as turning from sin on your own. I define repentance as turning to Jesus Christ who overcame sin for us. Big difference...
My faith is in HIM, your faith is in YOURSELF. Can you overcome sin and put it away? Better be sure, because no sin shall enter.
---duane on 11/5/08


For all of you that believe that you do not need to repent to have your sins forgiven, or that repentance voids out what Jesus did on the cross, here are some scripture to say otherwise. Luke 13:3,5 (repent or perish (go to Hell)), Acts 2:38, Acts 3:19 (repent and be saved), Acts 17:30 (repent). If you are still not convinced, you are worshipping a FALSE god. The gospel of grace says that repentance is not necessary and is a FALSE teaching.
---Leslie on 11/4/08


Act 26:20 But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and [then] to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.

Let us rember that Peter's altar calls started off with calls for repentance. Just Like JESUS. Luk 13:5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

Without repentance, God can NOT and will NOT forgive your sins. God is sinless, and Heaven cannot allow sin in it. Without repentance, you are destined to Hell. Do NOT trample on the grace of God anymore. Grace allows us to see the need to repent.
---Leslie on 11/4/08


What, is the connection between repentance and salvation? The Book of Acts focus on repentance in regards to salvation (Acts 2:38, 3:19, 11:18, 17:30, 20:21, 26:20). To repent, in relation to salvation, is to change your mind in regards to Jesus Christ. In Peters sermon on the Day of Pentecost (Acts chapter 2), he concludes with a call for the people to repent (Acts 2:38). Repent from what? Peter is calling the people who rejected Jesus (Acts 2:36) to change their minds about Him, to recognize that He is indeed Lord and Christ (Acts 2:36). Peter is calling the people to change their minds from rejection of Christ as the Messiah, to faith in Him as both Messiah and Savior.
---kathr4453 on 11/3/08


Cont #2 PLEASE POST

Repentance and faith can be understood as "two sides of the same coin." It is impossible to place your faith in Jesus Christ as the Savior without first changing your mind about who He is and what He has done. Whether it is repentance from willful rejection, or repentance from ignorance or disinterest it is a change of mind, that results in a change of life. Biblical repentance, in relation to salvation, is changing your mind from rejection of Christ, to faith in Christ.

Jesus Christ is the ONLY ONE who can change your life, and set you free!

---kathr4453 on 11/3/08


Faith is action, action is the change of mind. Faith is the change of mind.
example...We believe a chair can hold our weight but sitting on it shows (is) our faith.
Faith is like love. Giving your life for another IS love.

Many many people have faith or believe in Jesus without ever having repentance or "a change" in their life.
---evangelistjerry on 11/2/08


Kathr4453 - If you disagree with me, then you are disagreeing with the Bible - saying that the Bible is lieing. Repentance points people to the cross. Repentance says "I am a filthy sinner, in need of a savior, and cannot save myself". It is obvious that you do not believe that you are a sinner in need of a savior, and can save yourself. This is why you do not believe in repentance. If this is true, then only Christ can save you, and I pray that you do not go to Hell in your deception and ignorance.
---Leslie on 11/1/08


***Repentance and faith are entirely different.***

Oh really Frances? FAITH is TRUST in someone else. When we place our faith in Jesus Christ we place our TRUST in Him, and ALL that HE has said.

The rest of that verse says...only those who do the WILL of My Father....doesn't it.

Well, Romans 12:1 & 2....is the ONLY way one can really KNOW the WILL of the Father. It takes total TRUST to completely surrender your life to someone else with HIS promise to TRANSFORM YOU. You cannot transform yourself.

Repent means to turn around placing your TRUST in Christ.

The Gospel of Grace preached in Acts, certainly does say repent. However repentance does not save anyone...believing in Jesus Christ is what saves. We are justified by His Blood and saved by His risen life. One must certainly believe the old man crucified and the New Man raised up together with Him a New Creation In Christ. We cannot crucify ourselves or even nail our sin to the cross...That is the work of Christ alone.

1. God created men and women in His likeness.
2. God gave them free will, that is why Adam and Eve sinned.
3. God gave them a conscience as a result of that sin.
4. We can obey our conscience or we can deny it.
5. God wants us to obey our consciences.
6. Those who obey their consciences will be judged and found obedient to God.
7. Jeus is the Judge and so all mankind can be saved by Jesus if they repented and produced fruits in keeping with repentance.
If this is too Roman Catholic, too bad.
---frances008 on 10/29/08


If you look in my past posts you will see that for a short time I rejected the idea of free will. However, I was mistaken. So insidious have the heresies from Calvinism been, that I almost lost the true gospel position. If it was not that I read my Bible daily, I would have taken up with this idea that only a certain number of people are saved by grace, and the rest were made by God for Him to watch as Jesus damned them to Hell for simply never having heard about Him, or hearing a false Jesus preached. Now I am totally convinced that it is our actions that will decide whether we go up or down for eternity. This is what Jesus taught, not what Calvinists teach.
---frances008 on 10/29/08


Jesus's grace is available to the whole of humanity, they do not need necessarily to have heard of Jesus. This God-given gift (grace) needs to be received for it to be active and work for our salvation. Nobody lights and lamp and puts it under a bed. The man who buries his talents is thrown into outer darkness. If we are not actively working with Jesus, then we are actually helping the devil. If we do not obey when our consciences tell us to do or to not do something, then we are disobeying God. Grace is freely available to all of mankind, and it does not depend on any message just a receptive heart and repentance for sins.

"The gospel of the grace of God" Acts 20:24. "The gospel of the kingdom" Matthew 24:14. "and eternal gospel" Rev. 14:6.

In the dispensation of Conscience Noah found Grace in the sight of God. (Gen. 6:8). God again intervened, saving Noah and his family. In the dispensation of Civil goverment man rebellied by building the tower of Babel. Again God did not distroy

#4. the rebellious creation, but continued to work in the hearts of men like Abraham and Melchizedek by making a Covenant of Grace with Abraham, a Covenant which the giving of the law never nullified, (Gal. 3:17). From the beginning God's Grace abounds. Old Testament believers were saved by Grace, and through faith they were justified by faith even as the the New Testament believers. Grace reveals His loving plan to provide a means of reconciling human beings to Himself even though we are imperfect,

#5. without compromising His own nature of love. So I believe that Steven by saying that the gospel is a false teaching, he puts himself as one condemned already. I would think he has to read the whole of Scripture to understand the Grace of God towards all human beings. Even the lost receive some of His Grace as they many times live a much wealthier life then the believer, but that Grace will not save them for their is no faith given to them by God.

The Gospel is not new. Paul said, "The Old Testament prophets spoke of it". take note: If something is new, it's probably not true, and if it's true, then it is not new. [food for thought] GRACE--Precedes Apostleship. In other words a man must be saved before he can serve. What is the true gospel? It is God's power. 1. God brought Israel out of Egypt. 2. The Resurrection of Jesus. Yes! GRACE+++"Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, Cont.

Cont.>> Gospel of Grace>>With an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began>>[2 Tim. 1-9]

Steveng is partially right. Someone please show me any "grace" in Revelation? The only true 'gospel' is the one about the Kingdom of Heaven, which is the testimony of Jesus Christ and Him only.

The Father will have mercy on whom He will have mercy, and will have compassion on whom He will have compassion. So then it is not of him that wills, or works, but of God Who shows mercy [by His grace]. And if by grace, then there is no more works [for salvation]: otherwise grace is no more grace. Christ has called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace. We are kept by the power of God, through faith, unto salvation. This is the Gospel of Grace.

The Gospel of Grace is a false teaching.

This is just one of the many false gospels which include: the gospel of salvation, the gospel of miracles, etc. Satan is surely deceiving the whole world when he spreads different gospels. Many even believe the gospel is about the Person of Jesus Christ. If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that you have received, let him be accursed

Can anyone venture to guess what is the true gospel?

Gospel is just another way of stating good news. Grace is what God provides to us through His mercy. So, that means the Gospel of Grace is just a way of stating the good news of God's grace.

Romans 1:5 (NKJV)
5 Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name,

This is where people get confused with the RCC's teaching of faith and works. The RCC teaches that works are part of the salvation process, BUT those works are the result of Christ's Grace working in our lives. We DO NOT earn salvation in any way. It is a gift. Works are the manifestation that we have truly accepted His Grace.

#1 The Gospel of Grace teaches that grace is God's way of salvation. God sent His Son in the form of man to take upon Himself the sins of the entire world and to pay off their debt. That was grace, and the fact that He would show mercy and love to hopeless humanity is grace. Christ rose from the grave and gave us a positive standing in Himself as a New Creation - thats grace. All of Christ's assets are put into our account on God's ledger - that grace.

#2 The best part of the Gospel of Grace is that salvation is just the beginning. Grace continues to abound to those that are totally dependent on His grace.
