I am rather prone to legalism, so I like to find definitions of the term, then search my heart to see if there is any legalism in it.
Pastor Logan defines Legalism not as living by a set of manmade rules (that’s perfectly fine), but applying those rules to other people.
Here’s a definition from an author on YLCF: “…when something that we originally committed to out of simple love for God becomes a mindless routine it has a very ugly name: Legalism.”
What do you think? Are these accurate descriptions of legalism?
