I have a good friend that is always telling me that the sermons that i like. Or quotes that inspire me are always full of works. He claims that having freedom in Jesus, means your actions are forgiven. You don't need a sermon to remind you the need of a savior, because you already have that freedom.
My response is, then why do we meet each Sunday for church? Don't we need to have a continual need to hear the word so that it fills up our heart and helps us remember the need for a savior? I could go and on, but could someone help me out with this.
