GraceHeads and LawHeads

by Trent (originally posted August 25, 2005) - I call this my favorite blog ever

Ro 7:12 - Show Context
So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous and good.

Christian teaching can either focus on human effort driven legalism (LawHead) or grace driven abiding (GraceHead.) LawHeadedness generally denies any Grace ... but Grace includes obedience as the living out what God has put within, even the writing of the Law upon our hearts as a grace (divine enabling) that we might avoid the vexation of sin.

GraceHeads emphasize abiding. Our mission to believers is to teach participating in Christ and partaking of the Lord Jesus, not copying His behavior. We like people to work FROM salvation, not work FOR salvation.

Sometimes that makes people wonder if abiding will lead to passivity. But, living water must be received like water from a stream. There is some effort involved in drinking from a stream, but if you are taught that you have to grasp it will your strength, take hold with your own strength, and hang on to it with human strength then you will find that the water will elude you. HOWEVER, if you make room for it with your hands and just accept it into your hands, then there is not a reason to squeeze it and hold on to it ... and there is no other way to take it into you. Such is the nature of revelation and faith. Faith does not produce the things of God, but it receives them, and the receiving is the revelation.

LawHead-Legalism will teach you to take hold of the things of God, grasp it and hang on to it will your human strength/intellect, but yet these people have found it to elude them. How many LawHeads are afraid of falling away because of all the others that they know to have fallen away themselves? They should be questioning the method, they should question the encouragement to hang on to your salvation or take hold of it with your own human strength.

It's so wonderful to find people who are in love with my Savior!  I'm not hear to beat anyone up for how they believe, but to show them the freedom that can be found in Christ! Grace so amazing!!  Where would we be without it!!

Hello, Gretchen and the other people that posted! (I hope that each of you got the email that I sent.)

Glad you found GraceHead, and I hope that it is an encouragement to you.

I will pray that by the Lord Jesus each of you will be firmly rooted in His love, and grace.

I may poke fun at LawHeads, but every GraceHead that I know (including myself) were first LawHeads to begin with. We had to eat that toxin for years before we would even listen to anything about unconditional love. I guess everyone wanders a bit in the wilderness before enterring the rest that we were promised.

Ripening for the harvest,

God—The Illuminati's Vicious Global Plan for a Religious Holy War Between Christians, Jews, and Moslems.
Masonic Apron representing the 9th Degree

Slaying God—The Illuminati's Vicious Plan for a Holy War Between Jews, Moslems, and Christendom: A special Texe Marrs insight report. In 1871, Albert Pike, 33rd degree, Sovereign Grand Commander of Scottish Rite Freemasonry in the U.S.A., and Guiseppe Mazzini, Supreme Pontiff of continental European Masonry, produced a joint document outlining three great world wars to be used to usher in the New World Order A New Age of Illuminati world government. World Wars I and II were the first of the two great global conflicts to come. The third and final conflict, World War III, was to occur following a bloody catastrophe in the Middle East. This would set off a global "Holy War" among Jews, Moslems, and Christendom. Advocates of these three, warring religions would decimate each other and shock the people of planet earth with their religious-based hatred and animosity. The final outcome would be the establishment of a unified new religious system and a global empire guaranteeing world peace, love, and harmony.

Illuminati Plot: Jerusalem to be World Capital: Retired University of Texas at Austin Prof. Texe Marrs uncovers the most far reaching plot of the new millennium—the mind-boggling covenant of the Vatican, the Illuminati, and the Jews to make Jerusalem the Capital of the World and the very seat of a coming "New Age messiah." Long sought after by Jews, Moslems, Hindus, and apostate Christendom alike, this messiah will be the counterfeit of the Christ. He will be the prophesied "lamb with two horns who speaks as a dragon" (Revelation 13). Have President Bill Clinton, PLO Chief Yassar Arafat, and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak been ordered by Illuminati superiors to exalt the New Jewish Pope of Rome in his ambitious designs for global Religious domination?

What are people saying about Texe's latest bestselling book?
This is the most powerful book Texe has ever written. Codex Magica is the definitive volume documenting the occult empire running our planet today. This is his masterpiece

The attraction and power of this work to draw the reader in and hold him is astonishing. It reminds me of "Super Glue." Ted Pike

...there is nothing more revealing than Texe Marrs new book, Codex Magica Freeman This article in the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper followed the international controversy of Bush and family giving what appeared to be the devil’s hand sign.

Retired Professor from the University of Texas at Austin Texe Marrs' extraordinary newest bestseller exposes Secret Signs, Mysterious Symbols, and Hidden Codes of the Illuminati.
In Richardson’s Monitor of Freemasonry (p. 64), this symbol is used to illustrate the Royal Arch Degree. Masonic literature is replete with examples of the Jewish Star of David and other Cabalistic tokens, symbols, emblems, and signs.
Ray Novosel, writing from Australia in 2004, states: "Zionist world leaders, men in influential positions with the various Masonic organizations everywhere, have worked ‘hand in glove’ for a universal world revolution, which will bring in the One World Church and a One World Government. Many Masonic Lodges are exclusively Jewish, as are the controlling B’nai B’rith Lodges—the mother of the infamous and very dangerous Anti-Defamation League (ADL)."
Albert Pike maintained that, "Every Masonic Lodge is a temple of religion; and its teachings are instruction in religion." Pike also asserted that the true meanings of the mysterious and arcane symbols of Freemasonry are found in the occult philosophy of the Jewish Cabala, that Freemasonry owes all its secrets to the Cabala, and that Freemasonry is a religion based on the Cabala.
Regrettably, few Christian leaders have the courage to even mention the Jewish Cabala, let alone expose it. Timid, little cowards, they are too frightened, worried they will be reported to the Jewish ADL thought police and that they might (horrors!) be branded an "anti-Semite."
Here at Power of Prophecy, however, we choose to serve God with boldness and courage. Truth is its own reward, and we know that, no matter what the evildoers try to do to us, God is our shield and our protector. The Cabala is a supreme work of darkness, and Ephesians 5:11 commands we unmask darkness. That is enough for me.

This is good, for when Jesus came He broke "ALL the tradtions of man" pharisees! He came to set the captives free, we walk in His grace and it is by grace we are saved and that not of ourelves. We are not to be followers of man but followers of Jesus Christ!!! Good word in due season! Be blessed in the name of Jesus!
