Two lies that have become monsters

 

 

There are two great lies that are not only popular among the saints, but are starting to become so popular at the local level that to teach the opposite will brand you a heretic. They are becoming monsters among our members that strangle opposition. Their many advocates know better than to state them in these forms, they disguise them with language that is easier to rationalize. But these two great lies are becoming monsters in our midst.

Lie #1. God’s love excuses us, and the atonement, specifically the grace part, is how he makes that official, thus he doesn’t mind our sins.

Lie #2. Truth is not a matter of concern. Cameraderie is what we are after, because good cameraderie along with politeness toward everybody is charity.
