Moralistic therapeutic deism

The antithesis of the gospel of the grace of the tri-personal God extended to us in the person and work of Jesus, is a widely believed, though false gospel that some refer to as moralistic therapeutic deism. 

This misconception of the gospel posits a distant God whose relationship with humanity is grounded in a system of moral religion. According to this viewpoint, Jesus is the Savior in an historic sense, but now, in heaven, relates to us as a great moral teacher whose perfect moral example he calls upon us to emulate. The Holy Spirit is then sent to help us do so. To learn more, watch these videos:
