This week’s article: Israel Folau, Hell, Sexuality and the Cost of Following Jesus

Article link: Are We Prepared to Walk Away for the Sake of Christ? (by Murray Campbell, at the Gospel Coalition Australia)

Israel Folau has come out and explained his recent remark on Instagram that has led to huge public controversy, and has involved Rugby Australia and their chief sponsors. It seems as though everyone has an opinion, and so it has been helpful to hear Israel speak for himself.

“I appreciate his honesty and his humility. It made me think of the Apostle Paul’s words,

 “The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life”. (1 Timothy 1:14-16)
