Legalists at Heart

“We are legalists at heart. And as legalists at heart, if there was a continuing necessity of being under that law, we would find our pride in it, we would find our comfort in it, and we would try to find our security on it. It would detract us from Christ, it would point us away from the sufficiency of Christ, and it would give us a confidence in the flesh.

“And that is exactly what violates the Gospel.”

– Dr. Albert Mohler
