Gospel Points – Overcoming Legalism

If there is one thing that kills any sort of gospel emphasis or progress in true sanctification, it is legalism. Of course no one would even identify themselves as a legalist, it is always that person to the right of me, the one whose standards are stricter than mine that has that issue. Yet the problem is everywhere, especially in my own heart. We all struggle with the temptation to think that my standing with God is based upon my own striving and effort. In this podcast, I’ve asked my old college friend Brian McLaughlin (Pastor of the Fairview Baptist Church in Decatur, AL) to talk about identifying legalism and then overcoming those legalistic tendencies that sometimes tempt us to take pride in ourselves.
