The vast majority of Christians I know default to a way of life perhaps best described as ‘boot-strap Christianity.’ It’s about obedience, law-keeping, dodging an angry God, earning favor, etc. They call it, ‘living faithfully.’ But are they? Is self-effort…self-sanctification in theological terms if you will, really the life that Jesus intended?
My good friend Dave McCarty addresses this issue so well in the link below. I hope you’ll follow his blog; it’s well worth your time and way better than mine. 🙂 http://dumbsheepdave.com/we-are-not-called-to-be-faithful/
