“Cheap grace, which is another word for damnation.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship, p. 68
Cheap grace has killed the American Church.
“Both modern liberal theology and secular totalitarianism
hold pretty much in common that the message of the Bible
has to be adapted, more or less, to the requirements of a
secular world.  No wonder, therefore, that the process of
debasing Christianity as inaugurated by liberal theology led,
in the long run, to a complete perversion and falsification
of the essence of Christian teaching by National Socialism.”
-G. Leibholz, Memoir to Cost of Discipleship, p.30,
Is anybody listening? As the Church goes, so goes the country.
bold mine “Cheap grace…is grace without price; grace without cost!…
In such a Church the world finds a cheap covering for its
sins; no contrition is required, still less any real desire to
be delivered from sin.  Cheap grace therefore amounts to
a denial of the living Word of God, in fact, a denial of the
Incarnation of the Word of God.”
-Bonhoeffer, ibid., p.43
I know, I know.  Comparing today’s United States with that of Nazi Germany is ridiculous…
I know…
