Legalism and Modern Evangelicalism - Paul Washer

"Everybody is wanting to do something when we ought to be wanting to be something."

- Paul Washer

Sobering words . . . may we all examine ourselves in the light of God's truth and let that truth search our innermost caverns of darkness.

For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you. Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? (II Corinthians 13:4-5)

For a brilliant expose on how legalism takes many seemingly harmless forms - read Michael Horton's book Christless Christianity which you will find in my recommended books section.
