Here’s my suggestion… Go to Christianity Matters and read this post, along with the companion ones. Then, if you like what you read, let Mr. Lewis know with at least a “like.”

Legalism is a damaging man-made religion that draws us away from relying on Jesus’ work to relying on our own work. It is defined as an excessive and improper use of the Law, which occurs when we use the Law either to attain or maintain our salvation.
