Faith, Grace and a Dirty Word. Is Obedience to the Gospel of Christ Necessary?

Obeying the Gospel of Christ was a given in the early days of Christianity. Grace was understood to be given to those who showed obedience to the faith taught to them by Jesus Christ. So, why is 'obey' now a dirty word?

Today many Christians use the teachings of Paul to justify a life of selfish indifference to almost any teaching or discipline that Jesus taught. But did Paul really teach that obeying the Gospel was not necessary? Is faith, without obedience, the kind of faith that results in God's forgiveness?

This video presents some of what Paul taught in the book of Romans about the relationship between faith, grace, obedience and forgiveness. There is enough information presented here to give anyone a good head start in examining the issue for themselves in greater depth, to hopefully arrive at a deeper appreciation for an obedient faith.

What is "A Voice in the Desert"?

A Voice in the Desert is anonymous. Its purpose is to point people to the message, rather than the messenger. Most modern day prophets promote themselves more than the teachings of Jesus and the true message of Revelation. A Voice in the Desert challenges that error and more. Some of the things you hear on this channel may be difficult to understand, and may offend you. The goal, however, is to sweep away dogmas and traditions to reveal what Jesus actually taught.
