Michael Brown speaks with clarity in this Charisma extract concerning the ancient heresy that Jude warned about, yet is now being re-packaged by high-profile “charismatic ministers” who are deceivingly attempting to give it contemporary plausibility.
Some people have secretly slipped in and wormed their way into your churches. They are ungodly, “perverting the grace of our God” into that which excuses immoral and sinful living. By doing this, they deny Jesus Christ our Lord and Master! [Jude 4]
Please consider watching this video http://vimeo.com/59298991 to hear Dr. Michael Brown as he articulates a powerful polemic against this exaggerated error and expose it as the great deception of the 21st century.
“The biblical message of grace is wonderful, glorious and life-transforming. We can’t live without it for one second of our lives. But there is a message being preached today in the name of a new grace reformation, mixing powerful truth with dangerous error. I call it hyper-grace.
One of the foundational doctrines of the hyper-grace message is that God does not see the sins of his children, since we have already been made righteous by the blood of Jesus and since all of our sins, past, present and future, have already been forgiven.
That means that the Holy Spirit never convicts believers of sin, that believers never need to confess their sins to God, and that believers never need to repent of their sins, since God sees them as perfect in his sight.”
It is easy to see how such teaching can be dangerous, especially to a believer being tempted to compromise.
