Where Do They Get This?
| The sermon included
following Christ; not rules. Please tell me how you even come to Christ or
follow Christ without learning, believing and obeying His rules! Would
somebody please unravel this nonsense! You follow Christ by following His
rules. In doing so you are not relying on the fact that you are righteous
but on Him who tells you what to do to be righteous before God. Where this
contradictory idiocy comes from I cannot tell but it is not from the
Bible. It is another "Man not the Plan" foolishness. Preachers
destroy their credibility to preach this stuff.
Brethren are not Pharisees because they urge obedience to the Law of Christ. To obey is to rely on Him. Scripture tells us of Him and His rules by which we follow Him. It's not RULES or CHRIST. It's Christ's rules.
