More On Legalism

This comes again from Monergism.

"After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort?" (Gal.3:3).

RELIGION: I obey-therefore I'm accepted.
THE GOSPEL: I'm accepted-therefore I obey.
-Tim Keller

Legalism denies that Christ is completely sufficient for salvation. That some additional element of self-effort, merit or faithfulness on our part is necessary to either attain or maintain a just standing before God. - John Hendryx

What will it cost someone to be a true Christian? "it will cost him his self-righteousness. He must cast away all pride and high thoughts, and conceit of his own goodness. He must be content to go to heaven as a poor sinner, saved only by free grace, and owing all to the merit and righteousness of another." J. C. Ryle
