We have been warned that in the end days .... legalism vs salvation by faith will be the main division in our church. And we see it prevalent now. There is much division on this subject in our churches. But we must be tolerant and love those steeped in legalism. We must love even those with wrong theology.
Our prophet puts it so well. I just love the way she expressed it in this quote:
"All legalism, all the sorrow and woe by which you may encompass yourself, will not give you one moment of relief. You cannot rightly estimate sin. You must accept God's estimate, and it is heavy indeed. If you bore the guilt of your sin, it would crush you; but the sinless One has taken your place, and, though, undeserving, he has borne your guilt. By accepting the provision God has made, you may stand free before God in the merit and virtue of your Substitute." Ellen White ST 4-9-1894
