  1. Legalism

    "Legalist" is probably the greatest misnomer in the religious world. In fact, legalists who call themselves "Christians" are anything but "legal" and should be called "illegalists."

    Legalism is a lethal misconception. It is commonly thought that legalism demands too high a standard of performance for acceptance by God, but just the opposite is true. Legalism requires too low a standard. Those who preach law and brag about being "law-keepers" ...
  2. Romans 7, Part I
