The following article was forwarded to me by a good friend, it is a cheerful reminder of the freeing Word of forgiveness found in the mouths of our brothers and sisters. Give it a read:
What is sad about this is that there are pastors who would willingly limit the proclamation of the Gospel from one Christian to another. This, in general ought to piss us off! In fact what is even more distasteful is that these men don’t seem to be objecting in order to preserve some sort of morality or virtue (that would at least be understandable for this has always been the fear of the Gospel proclamation), rather they seem to be concerned with their own positions in the church.
We cannot serve morality or even the pastoral office by sacrificing grace!
