Dr. Brown talks with Bryan Purtle about serious gospel deviations today, including concerns with some of the teaching of the “New Mystics,” the abuse of the grace message, and defective views of the presence of God.
Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: The gospel of Jesus brings the wonderful news that our sins have been paid for, and we can live a brand new life. It is a message that brings us out from the service of Satan and into the service of God: free from sin, free to be holy. Let’s not diminish the power of the gospel!
Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: Friends, let’s set the standard higher; in fact, let’s set the standard impossibly high, as Jesus does, as Paul does, so the only way we can live this out is by the grace and power of God. Leaning on Him, we will find salvation, freedom, and deliverance into purity and holiness!
