Deception of Hyper-Grace by David and Nancy Ravenhill

Someone wisely stated, “The church has suffered more from her exponents than from her opponents.” This is certainly the case today, as we are seeing an onslaught of dangerous teaching sweeping through the body of Christ like never before.

With this in mind, one wonders why we get comfortable in saying things that are not true and go on as if nothing has occurred. The world calls it diplomacy, white lies and fibs. No matter how they are colored, they are LIES! These are statements that the world calls insignificant or harmless but are …
