Written by Jeremy Myers at redeeminggod.com:
I hold to radical, outrageous, shocking, scandalous, limitless grace. I believe there is no other kind of grace.
But whenever I teach or write about this sort of grace, it is almost guaranteed that someone will object by saying, “So are you saying that we can just go sin all we want?”
They are referring, of course, to the statement in Romans 6:1 where a person objects to Paul’s teaching about grace in exactly the same way. And Paul’s answer, of course, is “God forbid!”
Can I sin all I want?
In the past, I have responded similarly as Paul. I say “No, of course not!”
The reason God doesn’t want us to sin is because sin damages us.
