Once a lady I knew told me about a bad experience she had in church. She had grown up in a very legalistic church and had been away from church for a long time. Under the conviction of the Holy Spirit she knew she needed to get back in church, and so she went back to the church she had grown up in. During the service she was trying with all of her heart to worship God and get right with him, when two older women from the church sat behind her and began to berate her out loud. They complained because she was wearing too much make-up for their taste, and was compounding her sin by wearing jewelry. Furthermore, they condemned her because of the way she was dressed. Needless to say, this very sincere woman hasn't been back to church since. Legalism kills the spirit!
