SPF 120: Are Obedience & Faith at Odds With Each Other?

Good works, obedience, submission to Christ, the 10 commandments are these at odds with things like grace and faith? On today’s episode I invite my husband Andy to discuss some possible reason behind some of the hesitancy and resistance of words like obedience and how we can take great joy in the whole Gospel and the power that is at work in the believer’s life.
