Comment Policy

Got something to say about the articles you read here on E2R? Feel free to comment using the “Comment” box under each post. I publish every comment  the observes the following guidelines:

- Keep it short. I generally delete comments off that exceed 250 words. (And splitting long comments into multiple parts fools no one.)

- Keep it relevant. If it’s not about the post it’s not going to get published.

- Keep it congenial. If we must disagree, let’s do so nicely. Don’t attack others (Jn 13:35).

- Keep it ad-free and link-free. If you’re writing to promote your ministry, blog or book, you’ve come to the wrong place.

- Keep it going. Have something to say. Don’t cut and paste scriptures – we all own Bibles. Tell us what you think.

- Keep it real. You know my name. What’s yours? This isn’t “Commenters Anonymous.”

- Keep it light-hearted. This is meant to be fun. Seriously (Ps 16:11)!

- Keep it comin’. Subscribe to the comment thread then wait to see who responds to what you’ve said.

We reserve the right to delete or trim any comment that doesn’t honor the spirit of these guidelines.

For those of you not used to this gracious sort of speech, check out E2R’s law-based comment policy. It’s not pretty but it’s short.

    Paul E. The Lord’s truth you speak is causing my religious spirit (which I thought was WAY smaller than it is) to throw a kiniption fit. lol I think it’s looking for another home. Thanks be to Jesus Christ for giving you the revelation I’ve some how missed all these years and for spreading THE GOOD NEWS!!!

  5. I am soooo in love with the Gospel of Grace. Its hard for me to believe that after 75 years as a “Christian” I found the true Gospel of Christ. Thank you Jesus. I would like for you to answer a question that some have ask me and I don’t know exactly how to answer.
    Who do we pray to now that Jesus has left to be with the Father? Do we pray to Father or to Jesus or to the Holy Spirit? I feel that the Holy Spirit is sometimes left out even though He is the power of God. I never see this in print so a new post from you would be nice You are greatly loved by Grace people and I thank you in advance.

    • I don’t think it really matters. You can pray to the Father, as Jesus taught (Mat 6:9). You can pray to Jesus since the fullness of the Godhead dwells in him (Col 2:9). Or you can pray to the Holy Spirit who is also known as the Spirit of Christ (Rom 8:9).

  6. Hi Paul,
    Ur comment policy in ten commandment form had me in splits! Way to go brother! By the way, just wanted to know, the trials James talks about in James Ch1; are those persecution related or some other hardships?

    Hi Paul,
    I love your blogs and your first book “The Gospel in Ten Words.” I received notice of a Kindle sale on your second book, “The Gospel in 20 Questions” but it doesn’t show that book on sale in Kindle.

    • Sadly, it was just a 24-hour sale. But there will be others. We tend to do something like that every birthday (5 Feb), so mark your diary. I’m glad you enjoyed GITW.

  8. I think you’re teaching some heresy on the complete meaning of repentance…

  9. Hey Paul….I was backing up my discussion with Scripture…why did you delete that? Why not just post the Word of God and let it speak….

    • This is the comment policy page. Read it and you will see that comments >250 words, that cut and paste scripture, and that are unrelated to posts, will not be published.

  10. I want to talk about grace, sleep in grace, eat grace, swim in grace. Jesus is real! Ha. How liberating! I feel like a new born believer but I’ve been saved 20 years. Does this ever get old? Do I need to be careful to guard it or is that just another concern I need not worry myself with? Elated.

  11. “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.” -2 Timothy 2:19

    Luke 13:3 “But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”

    2 Corinthians 12:21 ” I am afraid that when I come again my God will humble me before you, and I will be grieved over many who have sinned earlier and have not repented of the impurity, sexual sin and debauchery in which they have indulged.”

    Repentance is NOT sinless perfection…..but a turning away from PRACTICING SIN…if there is not this happening in a believers life…there is no eternal security – Galatians 5:21

  12. I realize the one missing piece of the controversy of the hyper-grace message is “sacraments.” The sacrament is the visible channel of grace. To talk of the riches of grace is like talking about the power of a nuclear plant to provide you with electricity, but if you do not fit your house with any channels to get the electricity into your house then you do not enjoy the electricity. Sacraments are the channels by which we receive the unlimited riches of God’s grace. Baptism, communion, confession of sin, anointing with oil, preaching of the Word, laying hands, etc. These are the channels to receive grace.

    • So you’re saying if I need God to move – help me out, come through for me – I need to know, in advance, the specific steps required? I just can’t run into my Dad’s arms and say, “Please fix this Pap!” Well, in that case, my earthly father beats my heavenly father. Easy.

      • You are missing the point. Of course you can run to Dad’s arms, but “how” do you run to him. I assume you meant “Prayer.” Prayer is a means to releasing your faith. It is a sacrament. Prayer is not a good work, though it could be considered that. It is a sacrament, and so is confession of sin, hearing the Word, taking communion, being baptized, anointing with oil.

  13. Paul, there’s this issue of different levels of rewards when we get to heaven. I’ve searched your blog to find articles on it with no success so far. For me, that does not resonate with grace. We can’t earn salvation and nothing we ever do will get us more perks when we get to heaven compared to others. This is my gut feeling. Have you written something on this?

    • Yes – see chapter 20 of The Gospel in Twenty Questions. The issue of rewards is something most grace teachers don’t want to touch – and understandably so. How do rewards fit with grace? But there are some amazing things to look forward to. One day I may chop up that chapter as a series of posts, but not this month.
