Grace 103

I recently read Myra Perrine's "What's your God Language?" which is about the different spiritual temperaments; the different ways people experience God. At one point, she cited from TrueFaced by Bill Thrall, Bruce McNicol en John Lynch.

Grace 102

One of the books I've read at a time when I needed to hear grace and forgiveness (especially self-forgiveness), was a local theologian's little work, "Om uit Genade te Leef" (To live by Grace) by Malan Nel.

Ware genadeverkondiging klink inderdaad of ‘n mens “sag” is rondom sonde; dit klink asof ‘n mens sê jy kan maar “mal” gaan.
