Grace is dangerous

Internet Monk (Michael Spencer) has done it again: he has written another excellent and thought-provoking article (some people would just refer to him as "provoking"). Over at Steve Brown's blog, read "Grace Is As Dangerous As Ever".

I remember a quote that claimed that Jesus never got in trouble for being too strict or too hard on anyone. No, the things that caught Jesus in trouble with the authorities were his mercies, his healings, his inclusions, his giving of grace to those who others thought were unworthy. When is the last time that you or I got criticized for being too gracious or merciful?
