Veteran actor and playwright Maxwell Chiphinga popularly known as Max DC has published a book titled The Law vs Grace, which is set to launch at Blantyre Cultural Centre (BCC) on Saturday.
Max DC, who is now a born again Christian and has a ministry known as Line One, said Tuesday that the book speaks volumes of the power of God.
“The book opens you up so that you know what Jesus Christ really did for you. Many Christians including those of other faiths do not really appreciate the cross because they have no idea as to what Jesus Christ redeemed them from. Moses brought the law and it was valid until the time of John the Baptist (Mark 16 vs 16) and then Jesus Christ stepped into the scene to redeem us from the curse of the law,” he explained.
Zeroing in on the book, Max DC added that “man’s fallen nature cannot fully satisfy the requirements of the law”.
“From sunrise to sunset, we sin countless times in thoughts, words and acts. When the law is followed to judge a person, they will have to be punished for every sin. What about praying for forgiveness? The law knows no forgiveness for forgiveness is an act of grace and mercy, which came with Jesus Christ via the cross, the law has no mercy. No cross, no Jesus Christ, no mercy, and so, hell awaits them that fail to obtain grace through new birth in accepting Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and savior,” Max DC said.
He said this being his first book, he was determined to write more and that The Law vs Grace, will go a long way to open the spiritual eyes of believers across the world.
Max DC, who is also a musician, poet and filmmaker, said the launch was free but called on people to buy the book during the event.
The veteran actor has also starred in Spouses and Workmates which screens on Times Television. He is also the founder of Emancipation Theatrical Ensemble.
