Caution! Divided Church Ahead!

The Importance of Christian Doctrine.

Jeffrey Dahmer died in Christ. A good portion of the church does not believe this. And that’s sad. But God’s grace is that disturbing. Really, truly disturbing. God’s grace is for the wicked. You. Me. Jeffrey Dahmer. And Pastor Roy Ratcliff, who heard Dahmer’s confession and baptised him into Christ.

The Ex-Christian: Broken by the Church?

A profile of the Ex-Christian

Think carefully. How many times have you heard from someone that they used to be a Christian, but they no longer are? How many times have you heard them say they used to believe in Jesus Christ as their only hope of salvation, but now say they no longer believe that? Or that they wish they could believe it but they just can’t?

This year on Radical Grace Radio, we’re taking on the toughest of cases: Those broken by the church. They no longer believe, and many times they are either very sad about it or angry! Take, for instance, all the atheists out there who used to evangelicals, but now say that the Christian religion is evil!

Stick with us this year as we take on this important topic.

How can the Gospel get things done?

Episode 78: How sweet the sound

Considering how often it is that people misunderstand what “church” is when compared businesses and corporations, on this edition of Radical Grace we talk about clarifying doctrine, what a church is, and my favorite whipping boy: The idea of the Amazing Grace of God will somehow make Christians lazy and more sinful.

John Newton, the author of the hymn “Amazing Grace”, understood Radical Grace.

Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit

Episode 62: If they hated you, remember that they first hated me.

Some Christians out there are still wondering what blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is and whether or not they have committed it. In this edition of Radical Grace we answer the question that seems to be a live issue for the church at large.

Of Radical Grace, Hypocrisy and the Church

Episode 55: What is Radical Grace?

Jerry is our board opp. Jerry asked a question. Jerry wanted to know what Radical Grace is. We told him. His spiritual life imploded.

End of Story? We sometimes assume too much when we believe that people understand what we mean by Radical Grace, so I pointed Jerry and the listners to the end of Romans Chapter 5 and the beginning of Chapter 6.

We also talked about hypocrisy and how people use this as an excuse not to come to Church.

Cheap Grace

Episode 53: Can Christians truly abuse God’s Grace?

Is there really a problem with Cheap Grace these days? Pastor Greg Leseur of Christ Lutheran Church in Cape Canaveral joins us again as we look at the idea of Cheap Grace and talk about how this might be possible for Christians… if it’s possible at all.
