Grace is only Grace if it is Without the Input of Man.

 
The fear-mongering preaching of "Hell Fire" and "Brimstone" to frighten people into the kingdom of God is not presenting the Good News of God's Grace,  no matter how hot you deem hell to be.

John G. Lake said it this way; ”There were days when the Church could club men into obedience by preaching Hell to them, but that day has long passed. The world has outgrown it.” 

Grace seeks people.
Grace saves people.
Grace keeps people.
Grace secures people.
Grace empowers people.
Grace satisfies people.
Grace sanctifies people.
Grace forgives people.
Grace understands people.
Grace frees people
Grace loves people.

Many in Christendom today believe that grace saves, but to maintain that salvation the keeping of the law, or religious traditions and rules is our doing. this mixing of grace and law pollutes the purity of Grace.   

Grace has no impurities of man's involvement in it...Grace is pure....If if a chemist were to describe Grace he would say that grace is an element, not a compound. In scriptural  terms, grace is never a mixture of God's benevolence and human effort: "Now to the one who works, his wage is not reckoned as a favor but as what is due. But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is reckoned as righteousness." (Romans 4:4-5).

"But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works, otherwise grace is no longer grace" (Romans 11:6).

Grace is entirely the work of God, unprompted by man, unaided by man undeserved by man but...it is polluted by men who mix Grace and the Law as call it the Gospel of Grace, and that is a disgrace!

The Law is the standard of righteousness, but Grace is the source of righteousness. While the Law defines righteousness, only Grace can deliver it. The Law was never intended to be a means of obtaining Grace; it was given to demonstrate to men that Grace was desperately needed: "Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, that every mouth may be closed, and all the world may become accountable to God; because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin. But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets" (Romans 3:19-21).
 
GRACE is PURE!
