Tullian Tchividjian: Grace & Men
Perhaps messages like this are too much. Maybe the critics are right when they say that the "grace folks" have taken things too far. Sometimes I wonder if those men and women, whom I have great respect for, who call for "balance" are correct.
All I can say is that I love preaching like this! The gospel message, not the "be better" or "try harder" message, gets me through the day. The message of God's radical grace in Christ for sinners is nourishment to my hungry soul.
Honestly, the "balanced" preachers and their masterful expositions bore me to tears. I unsubscribe.
I will admit that I am an addict. I need grace, grace, and more grace - gospel, gospel, and more gospel - Jesus, Jesus, and more Jesus.
We all have our proof texts. My "balanced" friends make good arguments from Scripture for what they believe, and I appreciate their call to caution.
I will just say that the whole of Scripture seems to clearly state that men are wicked as hell, yet God's love for them in Christ trumps that wickedness. He is faithful even though they (we) are faithless.
Praise God for Jesus!
