Is the Bible just a book of moral rules? Is God just interested in us following his commandments? Some people describe their church upbringing as if the answer to both questions is “yes”. But how can a faith based on what the Bible calls “good news” be about nothing more than following God’s moral commands? What about love, and grace, and forgiveness, and joy?
This episode investigates the charge often leveled that Christians today have made Christianity all about right morality, and not enough about simply loving people the way that Jesus did.
In response, Scott and Shawn dig into the Bible to find out exactly how Jesus loved people, and how he related his love for them to the moral commandments of God.
If you would describe your Christian experience as little more than dreary rule following, then this is a conversation you don’t want to miss!
