Does Grace Produce Disobedience?

December 20, 2011

Tullian Tchividjian:

There seems to be a fear out there that the preaching of grace produces serial killers. Or, to put it in more theological terms, too much emphasis on the indicatives of the gospel leads to antinomianism (a heretical version of Christianity that believes there is no place for God’s law in the life of a Christian). My problem with this fear is that I’ve never actually met anyone who has been truly gripped by God’s amazing grace in the gospel who then doesn’t care about obeying him. More here.

    I was listening to a sermon by Mark Driscoll on the heart from Proverbs (http://marshill.com/media/proverbs-2009/the-heart). Mark states that we have two options in addressing our hearts – behavior modification or Jesus. He also says we can address children’s behavior rather than the heart issue of sin. I think the deep understanding of grace can grip a child to realize the Holy Spirit is the only one who can help us act out an understanding of that grace with our lives.
