Four times in the epistles the worry that using your freedom as baptized children to sin is mentioned and cautioned against. That isn’t the Gospel’s fault however, that is your fault. When we are tempted to use the Gospel for sinful means that’s not the Gospel’s fault! Understand that only Christ alone for me on the cross saves me from my sins. The Law is there to teach us how to love our neighbors, but we are free from the condemnation that the Law levies against us.
Host: Rev. George Borghardt, Pastor at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Bossier City, Louisiana and president of the youth organization Higher Things, Inc.
