About

Hi, I’m Harry Sasnowitz, a believer in Jesus Christ who tracks outside the box of institutional Christianity… embracing grace over legalism, love over judgment, and relationship over religion.

I approach scripture from a Christ-centered, New Covenant, grace based interpretive perspective, rather than from a performance based paradigm which is so prevalent within the institutional church.

This blog is meant to help immunize people against legal, performance-based Christian religion. Furthermore, through these blog-posts, I hope that people are refreshed in the love and grace of God, and are encouraged to love others as Christ loves them.

  2. Hi there! I was wondering if you could do an article on the Lord’s Supper and whether it is a celebration we are expected by God to do? I just know I would become full of anxiety, wrapped up focusing on doing this religious work in order to please God. I came from a church with performance-based sanctification and it’s something I don’t want to be a part of anymore.

    • Hi Carly, as far as I can tell, there’s no set time frequency to partake of the Lord’s Supper. But when we do partake, we should be eating & drinking with some other believers (number of people doesn’t matter) and it should revolve around real food/drink; a real meal of some sort. Rather than partaking in an attempt to fulfill a requirement to “please God,” it should rather be a celebration of how God is already pleased with us and already accepts us because of what Christ has accomplished for us through His finished work. He who knew no sin (Jesus), was made to be sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.” (2 Corinthians 5:21). As believers who have put our faith in Christ, we have been made right with God through the work of another; his name is Jesus.

      So far, I have taken communion once this year. For other believers I know, it’s been more frequent. But even if you never partake on a regular or semi-regular basis, it has no bearing on your relationship with God, your union with Christ, or His blessing upon your life. We are secure in Christ through our simple faith in Him as our Savior… nothing more, and nothing less.

      I see communion not as a “have to” but as a “want to” on a periodic basis in remembrance of Jesus’ love for us.

      I did post something recently on the subject of communion that you may want to check out. Under the category “Body of Christ” you’ll find a post entitled, “Contending With Communion.” Check it out and see what you think. If you would like to discuss further, feel free to email me at my home email, which is listed on the home page. And if you’re looking for a few good books to help you with your journey out of performance and into grace, I can give you a few good recommendations.

      Thanks for reaching out 🙂
