Grace Gleanings – 3 Errors Regarding Law and Grace

1 Comment

There were three errors in Paul’s day concerning Law and Grace and these three persist until today.

LEGALISM

the teaching that we are saved by keeping the Law, by observing days, rituals, ceremonies and the Ten Commandments.

This is the false doctrine of WORKS.

“…knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ…for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified” Galations 2:16.

The book of Romans counteracts this false teaching.

ANTI-NOMIANISM

the teaching that because we are saved by GRACE we can live however we want and it makes no difference how we behave.

“Even so Faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone” James 2:17

The book of James counteracts this false teaching.

 

GALATIONISM

the teaching that we are saved by GRACE but are kept by the WORKS of the LAW afterwards. This makes our salvation dependent on our WORKS rather than the GRACE of God.

”And if by grace then it is no longer of works: otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work” Romans 11:6

The book of Galations counteracts this false teaching.

”Salvation is not a matter of LAW and GRACE, but it is a matter of LAW or GRACE, for it cannot be both” M.R De Haan
