Check out Grains of Sand

August 30, 2006

I’d like to introduce you to an online resource founded by my good buddy Josh Brown. It’s called Grains of Sand and their primary objective is to encourage learning and spiritual development. You can check it out, subscribe or submit articles at www.gofs.net

I loved this excerpt entitled Force feeding salvation

“Every attempt to impose the gospel by force, to run after people and proselytize them, to use our own resources to arrange the salvation of other people, is both futile and dangerous. It is futile, because the swine do not recognize the pearls that are cast before them, and dangerous because it profanes the word forgiveness…. Worse still, we shall only meet with the blind rage of hardened and darkened hearts, and that will be useless and harmful. Our easy trafficking with the word of cheap grace simply bores the world to disgust, so that in the end it turns against those who try to force on it what it does not want”.

Excerpt from The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1963)

Thanks for the Learning Spirit!
