Romans 6: 1-14 – “Sin, so that grace might increase?”

People, even Christian people, love to find loopholes, love to make excuses, love to avoid a change in lifestyle by actually saying that the doctrine of being justified by grace means they can now live anyway they like, they are right with God anyway. In fact, the more we sin, the more they will experience God’s grace. Paul’s reaction to such a distorted view of Christianity is intense. At times we should be shocked and horrified at the way human beings can distort biblical truth. Paul is certainly not free from outbursts of emotions because the Christian faith is not just a pattern of thought, but it affects our hearts, our will and certainly our emotions.
