This final lecture in a series of three is about the present danger we face and the church as a whole has faced since it began. That danger is the threat of legalism. Even Paul kept his most stern admonitions not for the morally corrupted church at Corinth, but the churches at Galatia that was trying to finish up in the flesh what they had begun in the Spirit. Jesus rebuked the Pharisees for their legalism, too. Whether it comes from the smile of a megachurch "pastor" who tells you to "just do these few things and you'll be alright" or from another that seems to want your purpose in life to be driven by everything but faith alone in Christ and repentance of your sins, legalism is prevalent today. James White concludes this three part lecture series in this final one where he displays why we need to earnestly contend for the faith against legalism.
