"The real danger of legalism is that it produces a sense of attainment that short-circuits our call to live the life of Yes thorugh Christ. Self-achievement brings a false sense of assurance that somehow we can live a pure life in our own ability. This attitude ultimately leads us to cut ourselves off from the heart of God and, in turn, to deny our true identity in Christ."
— David Edwards
