It was the explosive moment of the season for The Bachelorette, when a professing Christian, Luke P. suggested that promiscuous sexuality might be bad. The whole entertainment world slipped into a coma for a few hours. But then, another professing Christian, The Bachelorette herself told everybody that she can do “whatever,” and Jesus still loves her, and forgives her. This introduces a conversation on the “Jesus Loves Me This I Know, So I’ll Keep on Rolling with the Flow” worldview.

Is it possible to have forgiveness without new life, and faith without repentance?
