It's Not Fair
"A transactional and mechanistic understanding of grace is built on a transactional and mechanistic understanding of the cross; and this is problematic because it makes grace something that God does, rather than something for humans to participate in; and it makes the cross the focus of God’s legalistic anger, rather than an expression of God’s gracious love."
"Grace forgives, and endures, and meets hatred with love; grace undermines law, and does so outrageously."
Simon Woodman, preaching at Provoking Faith in a Time of Isolation, The online gathering of Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church, 9 August 2020
