An Expose of Legalism

Artwork for Beholding Christ...The Son of God: A Study of John 1-5

For some people, minding the rules is more important than helping the hurting. These faultfinders enjoy heaping up laws that add to other people’s burdens and taking delight in judging others when they collapse under the weight. When Jesus healed a lame man, rather than take joy for his healing, the legalists took issue with the man for carrying his pallet on the Sabbath. What a bunch of fusspots! To oppose legalists in our day, we must focus on truth, confront with conviction, and embrace grace.
