Small group discussion guide
Discussion groups might wish to prepare their own topics, request topics from the group, use the following suggested topics, or mix and match all three.
1. In reference to the gospel, why is it inappropriate to say, “Grace, but…”?
2. Why do people worry about sin, justice, and judgment when Christ made provision for them?
3. What do you think accounts for our “conditional mentality” mentioned by Dr. Campbell?
4. It was said that true liberty and real freedom involve “freedom of response.” Please comment.
5. What do you think of the concept, “We have to resonate with what God is doing in our lives”?
6. Give us your thoughts on the statement, “We are released from sin as well as forgiven of sin.”
7. Why is it critical to realize that it is Christ’s faith imparted to us and not our faith in him?
8. How do you view Jesus Christ as being “our perfect response to God for us”?
A few simple guidelines for leading a discussion: 1) Encourage open discussion. 2) Ask questions relevant to the topic. 3) Listen attentively. 4) Encourage divergent views. 5) Encourage everyone to participate. 6) Summarize and paraphrase. 7) Minimize teaching and preaching.
