8 Signs of Hyper-grace Churches

Here is an article written by Joseph Mattera on eight signs of hyper-grace churches.  I don’t agree with all his points but I do think he is hitting on a subject that the Church needs to address and that is that sloppy preaching will lead to sloppy lives.  When we preach a soft gospel (which is not the biblical gospel at all) we are doing much damage.  We are creating many false converts to Christianity who do not know the gospel nor true repentance.  Instead, we are creating church goers who do not fear God, honor and adore Christ, nor comprehend the greatness of God in the gospel.  Further, hyper-grace churches lack in true evangelism, true prayer, and preaching on sin or holiness or even true grace.

The hyper-grace movement is just as dangerous as the prosperity gospel message in that it wrongly views God as a God who ignores sin.

May we remain faithful to the grace of God that saves us (Titus 2:11-12).

  1. About 14 years ago I became pastor of a hyper-grace church and bought into some of its teaching. But as I began to be convicted by the responsibility of faithfully teaching God’s Word, I began reading Scripture constantly and this changed my view of who God was, what the Gospel was and did and put me in conflict with 75% of people in the church. If church growth is the measure of success, I am a giantly huge failure. I am, however, very successful at Church Shrinkage.
