(Luke 15:10) If, for as long as this site exists, just one sinner is led to repentance and belief in Christ with the aid of the material presented here, the purpose of this site has been served.

      "What is a True and What is a False Conversion?"

      Thursday, February 22, 2007




      "You say, 'What about legalism?' Well, many Christians are afraid of legalism, but you know something very interesting? If you use the law before the cross, what you do is strip a sinner of his self-righteousness. You show him that all his righteousness is as filthy rags, and he makes a decision for Christ. Nothing in his hands he brings, simply to the cross he clings. He knows that nothing commends himself to God. Nothing in his hand he brings. He knows he is saved by grace and grace alone. So after a lifetime of doing good works, of reading the Word, of evangelizing, he still knows he is saved by grace and grace alone; his works don't commend him to God.

      But take the man who makes a decision that's not being stripped of his self-righteousness by the law. He just gives his heart to Jesus; he wants a place in heaven. He makes a decision not understanding God's holiness; not understanding grace and mercy; that he is undeserving of God's grace and His mercy. He really does think that his reading the Bible pleases God, that his going to church pleases God, that his good works pleases God, that his good works commend him to God. He is the one that is liable to get into legalism: Touch not. Handle not. Taste not. I think that is why the Bible calls the law of God the perfect law of liberty. God's law strips us of self-righteousness and frees us from any attempt to justify ourselves or please God by our own self-righteousness.

      So God's law when it is used properly does not produce legalism, it produces liberty.”
