School: 3 Things I Unlearned When I Found Grace

It’s amazing how simple and straightforward the naked gospel really is. In fact, most of my exposure to the New has involved more unlearning than learning. Once we remove the clutter from our theological closet, the gospel shines brightly again.

Andrew Farley, The Naked Gospel

The tricky thing about the true gospel is that it does not play well with others. I don’t mean the gospel gets mad and decides to take it’s ball and go home. When the true gospel shows up at the playground the bullies take off and if one of them tries to hang around the gospel makes them some uncomfortable that they choose to leave.

The day I finally gave up and accepted grace was the day my unlearning started. I wanted to receive rest and I received rest and an un-education. This journey of unlearning has been the best thing I’ve ever experienced. Let me tell you what I’ve learned.

Different: Three Things We Get Wrong about the Gospel

This is a guest post by my friend, Blaise Foret. You can learn more about him and all that he’s involved with at the end of this post.


Religion and Jesus are often confused for one another. And I don’t blame people for making this mistake because so often the most religiously minded people use the name of Jesus to justify their ideas.

Realize: Lessons About God from a Chair and Candy

My daily goal should be to live in the fully-known smile of God. He’s always smiling at me, I may just not always realize it.
Bobby Shirley

I remember when I was a kid, going to an older couple home and in between their La-Z-Boy’s was a big bowl of candy. A whole bowl! Ready and waiting to be eaten. The Psalmist David says of God that He has endless pleasures at His right hand. I think it looks something like that bowl and the La-Z-Boy’s.

Pardon: How To Unnerve People With the Truth

Forgiveness, or pardon, is not heaven any more than a medicine is health. Pardon is proclaimed freely and universally; it is perfectly gratuitous, unconditional and unlimited. But heaven is limited to those who are sanctified by the belief of the pardon.
