WEEK OF APRIL 29, 2012
Join us throughout 2012 for great broadcasts of the WHI!
Scandalous Grace
"Amazing Grace," it's one of the most familiar songs to everybody growing up in certainly the United States-it's part of our folk culture and people talk about grace. It's not like we don't hear that word thrown around a lot, but grace seems to be taken for granted where people don't really understand what that grace saves them from. So that's the backdrop we are going to be taking a look at in this program: looking at Paul's argument in Romans 3.

The Grace and Mercy of God

The Grace of God
In the specific language of Scripture the grace of God is the unmerited love of God toward those who have forfeited it, and are by nature under a judgment of condemnation. It is the source of all the spiritual blessings that are bestowed upon unworthy sinners (Ephesians 1:6-7; 2:7-9; Titus 2:11; 3:4-7).

The Mercy of God
Another aspect of the love of God is his mercy or tender compassion. It is the love of God toward those who are in misery or distress, irrespective of their desires. It contemplates man as one who is bearing the consequences of sin, and is therefore in a pitiable condition. it is exercised only in harmony with the strictest justice of God, in view of the merits of Jesus Christ.

(From Louis Berkhof's Manual of Christian Doctrine, p. 67)

"If we have a superficial view of sin—that is, just 'sins'—the logical connection is to a cross with a life-coach on it."

"I've even critiqued the concept of God being 'the God of second chances.' No he's not! He is the God of second life... he is the God of second Adams."
