The New Covenant – Part 2 LG 5

The Error of License
We now move on to answering the last of our four questions and turn to the issue of whether or not being under grace, as opposed to law, is a form of lawlessness. Beresford demonstrates that nothing could be further from the truth, and that grace is itself a covenant with its own demands and restrictions which God expects those within it to be faithful to. Indeed, the purpose of grace goes beyond merely saving us from the penalty of sin, and includes within itself God’s provision for sanctification; that is, being saved from the power of sin in our lives. The error of license is therefore here refuted in no uncertain terms. Beresford also continues and completes his reasoning for having asserted in the second talk that the Ten Commandments don’t apply to us, and that we are not under them. Has he thus redeemed himself from the charge of not being biblically sound? You’ll have to decide that for yourself.
