This movement of people who believe attracting large numbers of followers and having scores of "salvation cards" to turn into Jesus as if that will be impressive. Like bait on the end of a fishing line, it looks appealing, but it really can be deadly.IMHO, grace is meant to draw us closer to righteousness, not enable us to live apart from it.I mean this in a very broad and general sense, but what is typically the first response received if we tell someone to live more holy and righteous lives?"I'm under grace, amen?"Well yes, you are, but God doesn't give you grace so you can live fleshly, worldly lives Sunday afternoon through the following Sunday morning.True grace draws individuals into the heart of God where no sin can reside and all evil is forsaken.
