Christians Are No Longer Under Condemnation But We Still Must Deal Biblically With Our Sins- Romans 8:1-2,12-13

cheap grace, no condemnation
Don't let your freedom in Christ lead you to the deadly lie of "cheap grace"...

There’s a misunderstanding among Christians about the word “condemnation.”

Romans 8:1-2: Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.

Some Christians think this means they aren’t held responsible for their sins. This is true in an eternal sense. “No condemnation” is a final verdict, a promise of eternal life. 

But we still suffer consequences, discipline and even punishment for our sins here on earth. We still need to repent and change (Hebrews 12:5-6; Revelation 3:19).

A few verses after the “no condemnation” verse, Romans 8:12-13 says: brothers and sisters, we have an obligation —but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. 

Don't let confusion about "no condemnation" lead you into the lie of cheap grace.
