Stunted Grace

Uncategorized

In the effort to discuss grace in the context of rewards, inheritance, crowns and ruling & reigning with Christ, most Christians find themselves at a loss to show how what the Bible teaches on this subject is any different than what the cults teach with their different levels of heaven and glory, or the concept of becoming a god. 

This podcast discusses the idea of stunted grace, or gifts that God has already given believers that we don’t receive, either because we’re unaware of them, try to earn them, want them for the wrong reasons, or simply reject them. These short term missed gifts have eternal consequences of suffering loss, allowing others to steal our crown, or abstaining from our reward.
