Good stuff! This is something I've been discussing with people a lot recently. Thanks for the Dr. Rosenbladt resource. I won't take the time to explain why, but I'm wondering more and more if Christians really understand what you're saying here. To listen to most preaching, and to listen to most "Christians" talk, the emphasis seems to be on us and what we do or don't do.

I was just reading on Wednesday where Sinclair Ferguson was talking about how in authentic Christianity the indicatives of grace (the gospel; the good news of what Christ has done for us and on our behalf) bear the weight of the imperatives (commands) to holiness. The Bible emphasizes the indicatives. Many people emphasize the imperatives. But moralism is not Christianity. Here's the excerpt from Sinclair Ferguson that I was reading http://firstimportance.org/2008/07/23/the-fathers-purpose-and-sons-purchase/. The entire sermon can be downloaded here http://www.richardsibbes.com/702.mp3
