The Lost Message of Paul

Steve Chalke

Steve Chalke wants to start a new conversation about Paul the Apostle. He says that too often his words have been borrowed, lifted out of context and then put into the service of ideas, doctrines and behaviours which not only would he never have owned, but also would have strongly opposed. He says it is time to let Paul speak again.

He will argue that Paul has been so radically misunderstood that, for instance, original sin was never part of his thinking, and that justification by faith is actually based on a mistranslation of his words. Paul’s revolutionary message is that salvation is a gift of God’s grace to everyone, a result entirely of God’s faithfulness, not to do with our works, worthiness or even faith.

Join us as Steve invites us to hear Paul’s own words afresh, and in them find a new reformation and a new way of following Christ which offers liberation and welcome.
