“Law” or Grace

Did not Moses give you the Law, and yet none of you carries out the Law?  

(John 7:19a)

 

Who goes to confession before receiving the Eucharist? Everyone who is a Catholic, that’s whom! If we’ve sinned since our last confession we have to hope for the Last Rites when we cash it in. If not, we face the pains of purgatory … or something worse.

If someone wants to read “catholic dot com” about purgatory, feel free. When I read it, my mind presents too many exceptions from Scripture. If I let God’s holy Bible go to seed, there I will file under the questionable heading of, “Other teachings.”

When I speak of grace, we can’t buy or earn it – unless you somehow “know better.” Scriptural grace is God’s free gift.  Ephesians chapter two doesn’t allow us any exceptions: if we exist in Christ we have God’s access to His work in our lives. Verse 10 says, “In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.”

Do you keep all of God’s law? Or do you have God’s perfect Grace?

Got somethin' to say? Say it.
