  • The Legalist Series

    Contributed by Bobby Stults on Aug 3, 2009

    If we are indwelled by the 9 characteristics/fruits of the Holy Spirit when we are saved, why is it then we have so many ’professing’ believers who seem to do whatever is in their power to steal the joy and kill the fellowship of the local church?

    Contributed by Rodney Coe on Feb 12, 2015

    Legalism has and is harming our churches. How do we avoid it in our church?

    Beware of the Legalist Colossians 2:11-23 As we continue our Sunday morning tour of the book of Colossians we have to remember where we are and what the theme is.

  • The Legalistic God Series

    Contributed by Michael Deutsch on May 7, 2017
    based on 1 rating

    Too often we think God has too many rules and laws and we do not embrace God because of the rules/legalism

    Believing and Not Believing The God of Rules May 7, 2017 I believe there are lots of people who would love to be followers of Jesus, people who want to believe, however, something holds them back. While these people are rejecting God, I believe they are doing this because they have a more

  • "The Legalist” Series

    Contributed by Dave Mcfadden on Mar 5, 2018

    Jesus gives us the profile of a legalist.

    Last time, we looked at verses 37-44 at the profile of a hypocrite given by Jesus in response to a criticism from a Pharisee. After Jesus finished addressing the Pharisee, the scribes pointed out He had also insulted them. Jesus basically responded by saying, “If the shoe fits wear it!” Jesus more

  • Be Practical, Not Legalistic Series

    Contributed by Boomer Phillips on Oct 30, 2021
    based on 1 rating

    Jesus taught the Pharisees how He desires sincere love for people over meaningless ritual, and how He desires grace over legalism. Those who adhere to ritual and tradition are often unable to love others or worship God.

    In our message today, we will see how Jesus taught the Pharisees that forgiveness and grace toward others is a necessity before worship. The capacity to extend love and mercy is something that must be present in a person’s heart before he or she is able to worship the Lord in spirit and truth, as more

  • Are You A Legalist? Or An Illegalist?

    Contributed by Jason Smith on Sep 15, 2013

    Are you a legalist, or are you an illegalist? In other words, do you follow the law of God, or do you disobey the law of God? It is not a bad thing to be labeled a legalist. Satan has used this creative title to try to deceive many people to disobey God.

    Matthew 7:13-27 Who in this room would consider themselves a legalist? This is the topic that I would like to briefly talk to you about tonight: Legalism, or “The Lie of Legalism.” Since the beginning of the Lord’s church, the devil has held nothing back; He has created so more

  • Refuse To Give In To Legalistic Pressures

    Contributed by Paul Fritz on Jul 8, 2003
    based on 64 ratings

    What happens to people who prefer to live by the letter of the law rather than by the Spirit of grace? While the Bible urges us to perfection, you do not become holy through the keeping of the law. Do not give in to pressure.

    Avoid being blinded to the Spirit by relying on works of the flesh.(Gal 3:1-5) Question - What are the problems of living by the flesh and not by the Spirit? What happens to people who prefer to live by the letter of the law rather than by the Spirit of grace? While the Bible urges us to more

  • Touching The Lame, Lepers And Legalists Series

    Contributed by Terry Blankenship on Apr 2, 2008
    based on 3 ratings

    Jesus changed the Lame, Lepers and Legalists. Well, almost. Here we find the Pharisees burden and the Lord’s blessings regarding the Sabbath.

    Now it happened that He went through the grain fields on the Sabbath; and as they went His disciples began to pluck the heads of grain. And the Pharisees said to Him, "Look, why do they do what is not lawful on the Sabbath?" But He said to them, "Have you never read what David did when he was in more

  • Free At Last Series

    Contributed by Donald Mcculley on Aug 7, 2019

    Let’s study three things that Paul lists as great perils or dangers to Christian freedom.

    FREE AT LAST GALATIANS 5:1-15 INTRODUCTION: Picture me in handcuffs or sitting in a jail cell. Now, picture me unshackled or walking about freely. I think I might use the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “Fee at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, I’m free at last.” That’s the story and more

  • "The Legalist Only Has Law" Series

    Contributed by Clark Tanner on Jan 4, 2010

    Jesus has no cheerful words for the legalist. Is your faith in your strength? Is your trust in your keeping of the law; the rules? Go and do it. That’s all He can say to you.(Lk 10:37)

    (Part 1 of 2 in a study of the Parable of the Good Samaritan) “And a lawyer stood up and put Him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 26 And He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How does it read to you?” 27 And he answered, “YOU SHALL LOVE THE more

    Jesus and Paul experienced opposition from the legalists of their day, as will you and I. None of us are completely immune from its’ affects and we too must guard our hearts from presenting a message and lifestyle that God never intended

    Series: We’re on a Mission from God Message: Give Me that Old Time Legalistic Religion Text: Acts 22:22 Big Idea: Jesus had numerous confrontations with the legalists, who among other reasons, sought to kill Him for healing on the Sabbath (Mt. 13:14).

  • Do You Like Your Camel Well Done

    Contributed by B H Grace on Oct 17, 2017

    If you are going to swallow a camel it should at least be well done rather than raw.

    Mat 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. 24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and more
