Legalism

I was listening to the radio today and heard this fellow talk about freedom. (Learn more about his stuff here 'Insight for Living')
He was talking about a passage in Galatians. Chapter 5. Verse 1.
"So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don't get tied up again in slavery to the law." (NLT)

I sat down and studied the passage, again. I've been directed to it very often recently. Must be coincidence. Yeah, right...
The part about getting tied up again in the law has been hitting me hard lately. A footnote in my Bible encourages me by reminding me of a very great thing.

We must stand against those who would enslave us with rules, methods, or special conditions for being saved or growing in Christ.
