Legalism

There are some people who have come to believe that if they don’t get back to their Jewish roots they miss the boat. I am talking about those who aren’t Jewish, people who want to get back to the law and make sure that it’s the only way to salvation. In this context it’s Christians who have come to think it’s better to go back.

A conversation went on for a good period of time and I was given verses that showed how the law had to be followed to be in the will of God. I explained that we were not to push the Law aside because Jesus said He came to fulfill the Law not change it.

That did no good because apparently I still missed the point. And the Law was given as the only answer. My response was very simple. Jesus came and paid the price on the cross because we are incapable of being good enough to satisfy the Law. It was only through Him that we are able to receive God’s grace.

Conclusion: my comments were deleted because of my answer. I was not aware that some who came to Yeshua hate Jesus. Really blew my mind.

Here’s what this is all about If you think your going to make “points” with God because you all of a sudden become legalistic then you have missed the reason Jesus came in the first place. If you think you can be good enough to get to heaven you don’t understand that if it were true… Jesus wouldn’t have had to die on the cross for you.

Pure and simple fact your a sinner just like everyone else, you are condemned because you were born in sin. You can’t fix that by yourself, you must go through Jesus alone. John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Many people try to twist that or change it and allow for any other means, but the truth is their liars and if you follow their lead, it will lead you directly into damnation.

“O you legalists who are looking to yourselves for some arguments
with which to prevail with God! O you who look to your sacraments,
to your outward forms, to your pious deeds and your almsgivings
for something that will move the heart of God–know this, that
these things are no lever that can ever move Him to love!
Nothing but your sin and misery can ever stir His mercy!
And you look to the wrong place when you look to your merits
to find a plea why he should show pity upon you!” Charles Spurgeon
