Defending the Gospel of Grace
051 - Chronological Study of the Early Church: Paul’s entire ministry will be spent defending that truth against those who want to add to the Gospel and diminish the effectiveness of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. 1) Our salvation cannot be attained nor maintained outside of the grace of God. 2) Grace is not what fills the gap between our efforts and God’s standard, because there is nothing we can add to it. 3) There is no distinction between the OT and NT when it comes to grace, because grace is an eternal attribute of God.
