If the gospel of Jesus Christ is watered down it means that we are preaching cheap grace. When we preach cheap grace, where is the power of the cross?
Cheap grace is a deadly enemy of the Church. Cheap grace means the justification of sin without the justification of the sinner. Cheap grace is the grace we bestow on ourselves. Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance. Oh how so deceptive! Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ. As far as I am concerned, grace isn’t cheap. The blood of Jesus is not cheap!
What shall we say [to all this]? Are we to remain in sin in order that God’s grace (favor and mercy) may multiply and overflow? Certainly not! How can we who died to sin live in it any longer? – Romans 6:1-2 AMP
