Legalism and Holiness
Legalism and Holiness ( righteousness). i would like to submit to the readers a simple description of legalism and holiness or righteousness.
Legalism is man's way to gain God's approval by following rules and regulations by his or her own efforts.
While holiness or God's righteousness is receiving the righteousness of Jesus Christ in exchange for our sins(unrighteousness) and allowing the Holy Spirit to lead us moment by moment.
It is my understanding that our Lord Jesus took our sins and paid for them on the cross. Jesus then gave us His righteousness and His Spirit to help us in our Christian life.
Any comment ?
