Amazing Grace, How Sweet the Sound


Amazing Grace by Len Matthews

Today’s reading is Ephesians 2.

Certainly, I hope you will pursue what God wants you to do for Him today. However, take some time today to remember what God has done for you. “But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ–by grace you have been saved–and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.” Talk about Victory. Praise the Lord!!!

Tomorrow’s reading is Ephesians 3.

      • That’s not close to my point.

        The idea of vicarious redemption through the torture and slaughter of a 3rd party is in NO WAY moral nor ethical.

        this is what I object to


          • Are you REALLY saying you don’t have the capacity to evaluate whether someone being tortured & killed is moral or not?

            I know it’s immoral, as:
            1. I wouldn’t want it done to me;
            2. I wouldn’t want it done you you or anyone else on earth; and
            3. Jesus wanted the cup to be taken from him too (although this is inconsistent between Gospels)

            Can the all powerful, all knowing God not come up with anything more clever than a blood sacrifice? Why not simply forgive? This doesn’t make sense to me, nor most people who’ve given serious thought to the morals of such actions.


            • You did not read my reply very well. I did not say that we do not have the capacity to evaluate whether someone being tortured & killed is moral or not?

              God allowed a blood sacrifice because it were human being who thought they should bring blood sacrifices to their gods.
