The Legalist; Spiritual Ignorance; Virtue Signaling-Hypocrisy; Truth…
The Law is not hated by those who love Christ nor is Christianity lawlessness concealed by faith but the Law is seen for what it is, a Tutor, a Foreshadowing, an indictment of humanity and our need for a Redeemer (Galatians 3:24-25; Romans 3:20-23).
I weary of the legalists and their virtue signaling hypocrisy who gag at a gnat and swallow a camel. If Law was a path to life, Jesus would not have needed to suffer and die in your place (Galatians 2:21) and the Law is given to the lawless as an adjudicatory standard for Judgment (Rev 20:11-15; Romans 3:20), not the righteous in Christ (1 Timothy 1:9).
The faithful in Messiah Jesus don’t walk daily seeking adherence to letters scratched upon parchment or etched in stone (Romans 6:14) but the one who loves Jesus and possesses the precious Holy Spirit as Guarantor of covenant relationship (Ephesians 1:13-14) seeks obedience to the Spirit’s will via the conscience via the daily process of sanctification (Galatians 5:16).
Your blind love of the Law and your false accusations of lawlessness in Christianity denotes your lack of knowledge and the absence of the Holy Spirit in your life. The Holy Spirit’s anointing in the life of the redeemed by faith is an eternally superior form of behavioral modification through the “new creation” in Christ (1 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 5:16), the Spirit’s anointing is an infinitely superior conveyor of fruitful obedience than the failed Law Covenant (Hebrews 8:7) that sought conformity to letters by a sinful nature that could never attain the perfection necessary for a works oriented, self-righteous, salvation (James 2:10; Galatians 3:10; Galatians 2:16; Romans 3:20-23).
The ONLY righteousness attainable in this life constrained by Time and physics is the IMPUTED – GIFTED righteousness of Jesus Christ provided by faith in Jesus as Lord; any other pursuit of righteousness is futile and will culminate in death of mind, body, soul, in Hell (2 Corinthians 5:21; John 14:6; Romans 10).
If one desires obedience that pleases the Father, they must first pursue the Holy Spirit’s anointing available ONLY by faith in Jesus Christ as Messiah (Ephesians 1:13-14) – any other pursuit of righteousness (a right standing) with the Father is “religious” by definition and nihilistic and demonically rooted in practice (Romans 7:6).
