Sons of Anarchy and the absence of grace

Sons of Anarchy is first and foremost a show about what it is like to live in a world without grace, a world where the law reigns and the Gospel is in short supply.

The commandment to love

Paul Nesta writes: "What is the greatest commandment? Jesus’ response to the Pharisees in Matthew 22 is direct and succinct, in a sort of unsurprising and underwhelming way."

The gospel ain’t about you

The gospel is the proclamation that “the crucified and risen Jesus is the Messiah of Israel and therefore the Lord of the world.” And the time is ripe for a preaching ministry that reflects this gospel and equips the saints for the holy life which is our spiritual worship.

Worship, law, and “my personal Jesus”

The idea of a personal relationship with Jesus that lacks the experience of grace as command is just plain silly. Like sex without committed fellowship under God, it ain't the real thing.
