Labeling Someone a “Legalist”

Holding to solid doctrinal beliefs and defending those biblical beliefs is not “legalism”.

Holding to biblical morality and insisting that the church hold to that morality is not “legalism”.

Technically, “legalism” is not even a biblical word.

It’s a word created to describe an attitude one might encounter in a church or in an individual Christian. Specifically, it’s an attitude of one who tries to enforce a set of values or practices that are not specifically biblical. But which might be the accepted norm within a group.

Or an attitude held by someone lacking tolerance for anyone that doesn’t fit a specific standard. Like a Pharisee who tries to get everyone in line with Traditions that are extra-biblical.

Enforcing Traditions that are not specifically spelled out in scripture.

Traditions that are secondary principles. Traditions open to interpretation. And open to the exercise of Christian liberty.

Risen with Christ!

Clouds Parting Bright Yellow

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.” (Colossians 3:1-4)

A Christian is already living in Resurrected Life NOW.

We are not talking of physical life here. This is about our spiritual life.

This is what it means when a person must be “born again”. Born a second time.

A true Christian is living what is actually an Imputed Life.

Which can only be true if God has declared us to be both Crucified and Risen. We can only be risen with Christ if we have already been crucified, dead, and buried.

An Amazing Christmas Gift

Candles Banner Christmas

Christmas is a celebration of God’s Revelation of Himself in physical form.

In Creation, we can see His majesty, His eternal power, and His Godhead.

In the Law, we can see God “codifying” His character in written form.

In Jesus Christ, we see the fullest revelation of who God really is.

For in Christ “dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” (Colossians 2:9)

Light in the Darkness

Merry Christmas Candle

That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.(John 1:9)

This Light is Jesus Christ.

The Bible says that He is the Creator of this world and of all that is in the universe. There is nothing that exists which He did not create. All things were made by Him and for Him.

But, of course, that does not fit in with the thinking of modern secular man. His view is that man is merely an animal. Just a more sophisticated one. With the ability to communicate thru a written language. And possessing self-awareness.

A “Kind” Orthodoxy: Conclusion – Loving People into Heaven


Why trimmest thou thy way to seek love? therefore hast thou also taught the wicked ones thy ways.” (Jeremiah 2:33)

Brian McLaren, along with other Emergent and Progressive teachers, states that he is not being absolute in his statements. He says that he may be wrong. But, then again, he may be right. And that he is trying to be provocative in order to make people think.

How nice.

This has become a popular way of writing and teaching today. Christians think they are being humble by not taking hard positions on Truth. By not being so dogmatic about their beliefs.

They think that casting doubts upon biblical truth is not harmful. That it is a neutral thing.

But it isn’t.

It is simply another technique used to De-Constructthe faith once delivered unto the saints“.

Legalism: Conclusion – Faith and Works are Not Equal


Christian leaders are shifting the emphasis of discipleship from faith in the words of God to demonstrating ones faith by his works. And, it’s not that good works are not important, this is about getting the cart before the horse.

This is one reason why those who stand upon the critical necessity of doctrinal soundness are considered divisive. Because, they insist that solid, biblical teaching must take precedence over all other activities, outreaches, and programs.

Such Christians are categorized as those who preach law instead of grace. Or as those who idolize the written word of God and insist that everyone must have all their doctrinal beliefs in perfect order and agreement.

Or as those who have more love for the law than for people,

And therefore, are labeled, “legalists”.

A spirit of Fear: Conclusion – The Hammer

Hooded Dark Figure

The time is long passed for us to quit following after Christian leaders who promote socialism, social justice, racial justice, and all manner of social reforms that have nothing to do with biblical truth.

That have nothing to do with the gospel.
