Trending Faith: Ethics and Grace

Posted on October 06, 2015  in  [ Theology & Ministry ]

“Why are Christians so concerned with ethics when they claim to be saved by grace?”

Dean of the College of Theology Jason Hiles, PhD, and Grand Canyon University Pastor and Dean of Students Tim Griffin discussed why the conversation of ethics is important to Christians on this week’s Trending Faith.

This isn’t a conversation of grace being earned. Grace can’t be earned; it is freely given.

But part of following Jesus is acting in the ways that He would have. Concerning ourselves with living an ethical life isn’t so that we can earn grace; rather, it is so we can be a reflection of what it means to follow Jesus.

“Ultimately, our battle isn’t against flesh and blood. There is a spiritual battle that is going around us,” said Dr. Hiles. “It’s much more powerful than winning a war of words.”

About College of Theology

Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.
