A quote from Mel Gibson's film Braveheart

"You have come to fight as free men and free men you are. What will you do with your freedom! Will you fight? Fight and you may die. Run and you will live at least a while and die in your beds where you'll dream of that come back here and tell the English that they may take our lives but they'll never taken our freedom!"

This isn't personal against the English! But folks that should be the cry of the Church! To the devil! To each other! I have said that to God, I have said, "Lord if I can't live in freedom - if I allow religion to conform me and control me then Lord please take me home. I do not want to live on this planet as so many Christians controlled by the spirit of condemnation, the fear of rejection, controlled and manipulated by guilt and fitting into the religious norm instead of being a pioneer - a prophetic person that breaks out and advances the Kingdom!".

Proclaiming the right gospel...

"Paul’s gospel is built on the understanding that the key to spiritual transformation is not found in trying to improve oneself. It’s found in believing who we Christians are in Christ and who Christ is in us.

For Paul, the Christian life is becoming what you are. Consequently, the common approach he takes in his letters is to remind God’s people of who they have become as new creatures in Christ. All of his exhortations flow out of that reminder.

The church of Jesus Christ is called to embody and proclaim the gospel that Paul preached—which is the gospel of Jesus Christ." The gospel of grace...

Grace-killing ministers do what?

"If you claim to be a messenger of grace; if you think you are really preaching grace, yet no one is taking advantage of it, maybe you haven't preached it hard enough or strong enough. You can be sure of this: Grace-killing ministers will never have that charge brought against them. They make sure of that!"

"Religion: "Replacing relationship with God for rules and rituals. Adding to God's word with traditions of men, and operating in wisdom of man instead of God's revealed will and wisdom."

a. Conforming to man or a religious circle.....Uniformity
b. The religious spirit seeks to have us serve the Lord to gain his approval instead of receiving our approval through the cross.
c. Living in fear of pleasing men, self-preservation, self-protection, and being an exclusive sect that is closed to anything different.
d. Measuring up to man's expectations that are not from the Lord
e. Death, sterility, and lack of the true anointing: "A religious spirit is a demon which seeks to substitute religious activity for the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives."
It's primany goal in any church or ministry is to bring them to a place where "They have a form of godliness, but deny its power (2Tim 3:5)."

...it can do nothing else...

"Law kills, it can do nothing else! Grace makes alive; it too, can do nothing else! The Law is a prosecutor, and a good one--the best one that the Universe will ever see. Grace is a defense attorney pleading the finished work of Christ. Grace will never lose a case, even against the great prosecutor, Law, because the Judge is also the Savior."

Faith is obedience!

"Faith is obedience. Faith means I accept absolutely, completely, determinedly, exactly what God says is so, and I stake my life on it. And though I fail a million times, I still stake my life on it. Though every man is a liar, God is true. (Romans 3:4)."

The obedience of faith

The difference between “where you are” and “where God wants you to be” is how much you are willing to obey and i am talking the obedience of faith, not obedience to the law!

Preaching Grace is Risky Business

"Martyn Lloyd-Jones once said that if we didn’t get complaints that we’d gone too far and said too much, then we probably haven’t really preached the Gospel of grace."
