Legalism influences seemingly functional and fruitful believers like hypertension affects the body. It is a silent killer. Legal and performance based religion is the most prevalent, unrecognized, and deleterious malady affecting the individual believer and the Church universal. Its influence has perniciously leavened the church since the first century. The legitimate pursuit of spiritual maturity often leads believers to unconsciously embrace a philosophy of performance-based elitism, forgetting the biblical roots of grace. This book exposes the philosophical and methodological roots of legal, performance-based religion as well as the subtlety of its influence. Readers will be equipped to not only recognize the problem, but to avail themselves of the liberating grace of God.
