I was reading someone’s post who was bashing grace by giving scenarios where others used “hyper grace” as a “license to sin.” And two different modern bible versions were referenced in that post.
So here’s the thoughts that I want to share with you about this issue:
1. Don’t trust the spokesman for God who doesn’t believe that God has perfectly preserved His word.
In addition to the fact that the Westcott & Hort derivatives (all modern versions) are thoroughly corrupt. Anyone who jumps from one bible version to another because they like what one version says better than another make themselves the judge of what God has said. They choose His words, they make themselves the judge of His word, which is extreme evil. (Those sort of people are not speaking for God).
The true spokesman for God will use the authoritative word of God from the received text. In our generation of English-speaking people, that’s the authorized king James bible. And that person will bow to whatever it says, and not go sampling other texts when they don’t like what it says.
2. Anyone who believes that grace, or hyper grace is a license to sin…Doesn’t know grace, and they don’t know their own sinfulness.
See the Pharisee and the publican in Luke 18.
(Our unregenerate is flesh is nothing but sin).
The only righteousness that exists in any man, is the righteousness of God by the obedience of one, given entirely as a free gift by grace through faith.
All glory to the risen Lord Jesus Christ, and no glory to us whatsoever
