Four Lies Christians Believe

Truth without Grace
Grace without Truth
Individual (How I treat myself)

  1. Grace doesn’t really apply to me.

“When I fail at a task, I am unlovable.”

Performance-based personal valuation.

2. It doesn’t really matter how I live.

“God just wants me to be happy.”

Self-serving personal ethics.

Corporate (How I treat you)

    3.      The mission is all that matters.

“Lead, follow, or get out of my way.”

Performance-based group valuation.

4. God only cares about “spiritual” things.

“This is a business - not church.”

Self-serving group ethics.
