Most people today-when asked what 'grace' is, call it 'unmerited favor'... This thread is strictly for those folks. If you do not call grace 'unmerited favor', please do not comment. Having said that... For those of you that describe grace as 'unmerited favor', please give a basic description of 'unmerited favor' as you have learned it. Please DO NOT post any sermons or quotes from preachers or pastors and please do not link to any videos on YouTube. Just give the definition that YOU believe fits 'unmerited favor' according as you understand it. Please do not comment on other peoples posts either. Just give your definition of 'unmerited favor'. I am asking the mods to remove any post that refers to someone else's post, so please do not waste the moderators time. Thanks in advance! ( BTW I am not compiling 'a list' of people nor am I going to comment on their posts. I am looking specifically at how many different descriptions I get and how much they vary from each other) It is for a reseach project. At some point I will end the posting and post the results, as well as make one general comment regarding my 'findings') Thank you for participating!
