The Gospel of Grace is an indictment of the American ideal that “everything must be earned” and “everything must be worked for!” Truthfully we tend to appreciate things less when we personally haven’t worked for them. In this culture you’ll hear things like, “God helps those who help themselves,” and “Pull yourself up by your own bootstraps,” and “Nothing is for free.” These things are quoted as if they were the fulcrum to our faith and to understanding the nature of God. However none of these ideals are found in scripture but they are found in our American culture. We have been conditioned by a culture of “transaction,” so that the Church operates more like a capitalist economy and less like a hospital for the sick, the lost and the broken.
