Over on Reddit the other day, somebody asked what grace is, how it applies, etc., a very general question. Among the many answers, I plopped mine in, rather short and insufficient, but a quick attempt:
There is “true grace” 1Pt 5.12, and false grace. Scripture teaches us the difference. False grace assumes we may ignore God’s commandments, that he will forgive regardless. True grace does not presume.
People had already talked about it being “unmerited favor,” and such like.
What would you tell the person?
