The Scandal of Christianity is coming alive in men and woman all across the planet. It breaks through barriers of religion, conformity and tradition. It's an easy to read mini-book about grace and how this author became born-again again through the revelation of this scandal. It's been a controversial subject since 40AD and it will continue to be until the end. Read. And then decide for yourself. More
A few years ago something fantastic happened to me. I heard THE SCANDAL. I had been a Christian for 14 years and had never been privy to the news. For the first time, I was exposed to the scandal that is ravaging its way through Christian circles worldwide. I was exposed to the Gospel. And when I heard the true scandal of what God had done, His grace came alive in me like I’ve never felt before. I felt what I can only describe as being born-again again. The realization that I was living under a mixture of law and grace struck me to the core. The fact that most of my Christian life left me disqualified and condemned was the evidence of the mixture that had poisoned me. I thought I was just a bad Christian at times and letting God down by not doing what I was supposed to. When I realized I was living in a mixture; my eyes were opened! His freedom changed everything! And I mean everything. Including the way I reached the lost. In 1520, Martin Luther wrote a book called The Freedom of a Christian; and in it he wrote a story about a King who marries a whore. The whore inherited the King’s name and by marriage she becomes his Queen. She didn’t become queen because of her royal bloodline or queenly attributes nor her posh behaviour. She became Queen because the King chose her, loved her and married her. No performance on her part whatsoever. Luther was likening this allegory to King Jesus who chose us to be His bride, His queen. We don’t inherit His name, His salvation or His blessing because we have earned it. He chose us. He saves us. He blesses us. We are His workmanship. Full stop. And THAT is the SCANDAL OF CHRISTIANITY! The Scandal of Christianity is my layman "pen to paper" to capture my journey and to look at the scriptures in a way that would make this scandal come alive in those who read it.
