1 There are many reasons for the failure to comprehend Christ’s teaching... but the chief cause which has engendered all these misconceptions is this: That Christ’s teaching is considered to be such as can be accepted, or not accepted, without changing one’s life. — Leo Tolstoy ( )

3 “Cheap Grace” “To follow Jesus and work to build a community of disciples only when it is convenient and only when it works into our personal agenda…”

23 SIN / GRACE

24 Before the Lord the whole universe is as a grain from a balance or a drop of morning dew come down upon the earth. But you have mercy on all, because you can do all things; and you over look people’s sins that they may repent. For you love all things that are and loathe nothing that you have made; for what you hate, you would not have fashioned and how could a thing remain, unless you willed it: or be preserved, had it not been called forth by you? But you spare all things, because they are yours, O Lord and lover of souls, for your imperishable spirit is in all things! Therefore you rebuke offenders little by little, warn them and remind them of the sins they are committing, that they may abandon their wickedness and believe in you, O Lord!
