Fighting Loose Living by Killing Legalism

What is their role in the Christian life?

If you were to survey an entire high school asking this yes or no question, I bet 80% of them would say YES.

“Is Christianity primarily about following a set of specific rules?”

Essentially, most people have no idea that salvation has nothing to do with rules.  And until you debunk that, telling a student to follow Jesus because Jesus loves them is like telling a patient to fill out more forms because doc is concerned.

No thanks.

Thank Tim Keller for this insight

  3. Actually, I haven’t either. I have heard about him, and really got to see what he’s all about by watching the series of videos where John Piper, D.A. Carson and him talk about the gospel. The one I posted in this blog is Part 4 of a series of 6 videos I found on youtube.

    The book I have on my Christmas list is “A Reason for God” by Tim Keller. I’ve heard great things about it, but I haven’t read it yet.
