Fallen from Grace: Understanding the Theology of Grace, the Dangers of Legalism, and the Three Phases of Apostasy
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 14 juin 2013 - 302 pages
"Legalism is a toxic poison that will affect your life, marriage, relationships, and ministry. It is responsible for more darkness in the Body of Christ than anything else." Legalism breeds self-righteousness, spiritual pride, boasting, guilt, despair, fear, intimidation, insecurity, and bondage. In this 2nd edition, the theology of grace, legalism, and apostasy are presented in one compelling volume. Charles Smoot, a former United Pentecostal Church International (U. P. C.) minister, reveals why legalism is a dangerous religious phenomenon that is dug in and entrenched in many churches and movements today. Justification, election and calling, perseverance, eternal security, holiness, backsliding, apostasy, reprobation, the unpardonable sin, the sin unto death, suicide, and more are examined from the vantage point of Calvary and the finished work of Jesus Christ. Only God's grace can lead the believer to righteousness, humility, faith, hope, love, peace, security, and liberty. Fallen from Grace will challenge your theology and cause you to examine your belief system. It will expose legalism and call you back to grace, Calvary, and the blood."
