Legalism in the church is a major cause for division in the church.
What result does legalism have on our young people? A great question I would like to address today.
Today’s kids are leaving the church in droves—largely due to a spirit of legalism and hypocrisy they see in the church.
Acts of Grace
Let’s face it; it’s hard to live a Holy life in a world that’s marginalizing our faith and throwing evil images and ideologies at us at every turn.
Consequently, a strong message of grace has emerged in the church that too easily gets interpreted as a license to live an un-holy life.
So, let’s examine ourselves and Scripture a little closer. Even though, through grace, God forgives us and loves us regardless of our failures—we still have an obligation to train ourselves and our kids to be godly.
Doing the same for our kids; that in itself, is an act of grace and not an act of legalism.
