The church's foundation rests on both grace and truth. We must maintain the tension between grace and truth. Lose grace and we slip into the bondage of legalism. Lose truth and we slip into liberalism where we invent our own truth and anything goes. At either extreme, we lose the gospel.
For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ (John 1:17)
Over the past 30 years, the church lost the pillar of truth in an unbalanced tilt towards grace.
There is a minimum stopping distance once the brakes are applied to a moving vehicle. If the brakes are applied too late, a catastrophic collision is inevitable no matter how hard the brakes are applied. It may now be too late to put the brakes on a culture accelerating into depravity ... in which case disastrous consequences are ahead for us. When much of the church jettisoned truth, it lost its' light and became the blind gracefully leading the blind into deeper darkness.
But while a ruinous cultural collision may indeed be inevitable, there is individual hope for those on board who are still in darkness.
