Elvis Presley. To the contrary, it is because I understand the hyper-grace message that I reject those parts of it that are unbiblical. Those who reject the hyper-grace message are grace haters. This is as foolish as claiming that those who reject counterfeit money are money haters.

To be clear, I'm not calling the hyper-grace message a counterfeit message, since it contains much wonderful truth; I'm simply making a point by using an analogy. Of course, it's convenient to castigate those of us who reject the hyper-grace message, calling us grace-haters and worse. But that's no better than me saying, "Those who embrace the hyper-grace message are holiness haters. In reality, it is because we love the message of grace that we are concerned about the hyper-grace message, since it represents an exaggerated, distorted form of grace.
Rejecting the hyper-grace message means going back into bondage and legalism. It is certainly possible that some people who reject the hyper-grace message swing to the other extreme and fall into legalism. I describe legalism as rules without relationship, standards without a Savior, and laws without love.
In short, legalism is externally imposed religion. The fact is that there are plenty of us who reject the hyper-grace message and live without a trace of condemnation, enjoying the goodness of God and responding to that goodness with a life of joyful obedience, walking in glorious, non-performance-based freedom, reveling day and night in the Father's love. But we reject the hyper-grace message because it teaches biblical falsehoods which pollute the message of grace and, over time, can lead to backsliding and spiritual shipwreck.
The reason pastors and leaders oppose the hyper-grace message is because they want to control people and make money off of them.
