#15: The Deadening Effects of Legalism (Rom. 7)

Scripture: Romans 7

Legalism was not merely the stumbling block of the first century Pharisees. It is an insidious plague in the twenty-first century church of Jesus Christ, producing spiritually dead Christians and churches. Pastor Hollandsworth confirms that Paul’s transparent testimony of failure in Rom. 7 occurred after he was regenerated, thereby demonstrating that we are all susceptible to legalistic fleshly effort for Christian living, which inevitably ends in defeat.
