The Fall and Rise of Christian Standards
Xulon Press, 2005 - 208 من الصفحات
If you associate dress standards with legalism, this book will positively rock your world! For those seeking a balance between nit-picky rules and permissiveness, it's an indispensable resource. What about legalism and freedom in Christ? What if I'm not convicted? Isn't God just interested in our hearts? These questions and many more are answered with biblical reason and logic. Using the wall of Jerusalem as an analogy, the reality of the church's cultural accommodation is clearly illustrated: the ruins of modesty, dignity, and gender distinction. The case for biblically based standards is established through practical understanding of relevant scriptural principles and their legitimate application to the polarizing issue of personal standards. This is a makeover for the church from the inside out!
