Hyper-Grace

February 4, 2015

We’ve all heard stories of people doing foolish things in the name of grace.

This has led to a debate in the church which has been labeled Hyper-Grace. A student asked me some time ago if I believed in this teaching. My response was, “I have no idea but I should learn what it is.”

To educate myself, I picked up two books. The first was┬áHyper-Grace: Exposing the Dangers of the Modern Grace Message by Dr. Michael Brown. Dr. Brown shares stories of people hearing more swear words and “F-bombs” in this grace movement than anywhere else. When they were confronted, the foul-mouthed Christians declared it legalism, ignoring any input.

In his book he shares a number of concerns with the modern grace message, including several topics we’ve discussed here at NoSuperHeroes.
