Many would view the subject matter which we have discussed as legalism.

The dictionary defines legalism as: "strict, literal adherence to the law, or to a particular code, as of religion or morality." Quote: "Legalism relates to principals of right and wrong behavior.

The question arises: Is being categorized as legalistic an insult or a compliment?

It should be noted that the word legalism or legalistic is not found in the Bible, however, its moral synonyms are: - - honorable, chaste, pure, virtuous, just, honest and righteous. In fact, they are mentioned over 500 times. Could it be that use of the word legalistic is an attempt to avoid dealing with these important Biblical issues?

Can we know for sure what is right and wrong? Is there absolute truth, a dependable value system? Should believers be adherents to the moral values of the Bible, or should every man do that which is right in his own eyes?

The Bible records that throughout history the will of God has been revealed to His people: "Nevertheless they were disobedient, and rebelled against thee, and cast thy law behind their backs, and slew thy prophets which testified against them to turn them to thee,"

The results: "...they wrought great provocations."

The Bible says that in the last days there will be false prophets and those who have a form of godliness, yet they are "lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God."

Jesus said: "If you love me keep my commandments."

Many who use the term "legalistic" as an attempt to discredit those who want to follow Godís instructions, label them as being self-righteous. Let me say now: "It is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:"

Being accused of obedience to God is definitely a compliment. The next time someone says that you, a believer in Christ, keeping Godís commandments, are being legalistic: The best response would be to simply say, "Thank You" Why? Because they are calling you a saint!

"Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus."
