On Legalism

I've been thinking this week about a lot of different things, one of which is how we think of legalism. For now I'll leave it at this and see what you think ~

Example of NOT legalism: Not working on the sabbath.
Example of legalism: Making up rules about how many miles you can walk on the sabbath before it's considered "work".
Example of NOT legalism: Not lusting in your heart.
Example of legalism: Making all women cover their entire bodies with gunny sacks so that no one can see at all what they look like.

Hi Laur,

Thanks for the comment on my blog.

In answer to your question, the only advice I could pass along would be for everyone to pay close attention to what they're told to do and to take things at an unhurried pace as far as relief work goes. It would probably be wise to pack sunblock for anyone who might be working outdoors, as well as some bugspray!

I think it is a heart issue, not a rules issue. Thank you for a wonderful post!
