If you’ve been in church for any length of time, you’ve probably heard teaching on “Lordship Salvation.” It’s the idea that you may have wanted Jesus as your Savior, but it’s not until the “extra step” of making Him Lord that you’re truly saved and God is pleased with you.
No one says it directly, but the message is that God’s in love with a future version of you that is finally more submissive. It’s nonsense. In fact, I’d go so far as to call it religious abuse.
Watch this short video where I share with a radio listener, Denise, that she was right to rebel and revolt from a church that bought the lie that we need to do more or be more for God.
You can’t make Him first. You can’t make Him Lord more. He just is Lord. And He thinks the world of you right here, right now.
