I sat down to type out a post about my thoughts regarding “legalism,” and how quick Christians are to cry legalism any time they are faced with standards set forth by the Bible that are not compatible with their lifestyle. I started doing a little research to find some Bible verses and sermons that I could quote and refer back to. Then I stumbled upon this Facebook status update from a church I have never heard of before. I was so pumped after I finished reading it! This pastor put to words every thought I have in my heart on the matter, and then some! Please take a moment to read this. He really hit the nail on the head!
The last quote is what summed it all up the best. “The “why” behind what you do will determine a legalistic attitude or motive.” Preach it, Pastor!
