“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
Ephesians 2:8-9, argues Steve, has been at the core of both our misunderstandings but also heated debates since the reformation. Grace is a free gift, but where it gets difficult, Steve argues, is around “Grace through faith. Surely it’s about one or the other. Grace or our faith? It is either a free gift or a very big effort.”
But what do you think? How have we come to misunderstand this passage? Do you agree with Steve’s interpretation?
