I breathe its toxic fumes from a young age.
Breathe in...."Frank if you don't give your life to God you'll go to hell,
Do you want that? Breathe out....God is an angry master.
Breathe in...."frank are you really going to a church outside of the church of Christ?
Do you know what they teach? Breathe out...I'm right , everyone else is wrong.
For years legalism distorted my perspective (thank HE not leave me)and desire to follow Jesus.
What is legalism? Legalism is adding anything to the gospel. Legalism takes the words
"Follow me" and adds stipulations, clauses and barriers. It is a facade and overtime, you believe its lies. The ultimate lie being the simplicity of the gospel isn't good enough.
Legalism shifts the ends goal from Jesus to something else.
With legalism, Jesus is not the standard, the standard is the Christian beside you.
You believe outsiders must behave before they belong. This is a core requirement of legalism. There is a particular standard. Though relative and unwritten. Outsiders must
Conform to before being accepted. Legalism says you worked hard to get to this point.
If you don't allow people in, whether it's in your worship, your home or your life,
You are making a declaration over them Jesus never made.
If you are exhausted with legalism's demands, you can break free. It won't be easy
Or quick. But you can break the chains and it starts with recognizing you are enslaved.
Very pleasant to have a sense of freedom from the yoke that is made by man.
Now I can feel fellowship with brothers and sisters from all over the world. Enjoy living testimony of their extraordinary that I am strengthened.
