CHEAP GRACE ........ for a Sunday.

Cheap Grace:
Dietrich Bonhoeffer , a German pastor , Theologian , martyr , spy , was  asked in 1943 how it was possible for the Church to sit back and  let Hitler seize   absolute power ?
His firm answer was .....  "* it was the teaching of cheap grace *"

'Cheap  grace'   ====  is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance
Baptism without church discipline
Communion without confession
Absolution without personal  confession

'Cheap Grace' ====    "  of course you have sinned , but now everything is forgiven ; So you can stay as you are and enjoy the consolations of forgiveness .

_and do it again next week. lo.______________________________________
