The Sunday feature of the Worldly Saints blog is all about quotes. No commentary from me, no reflection, etc. Just a provocative or informative quote from a saint in church history.
“The absolute worst thing about legalism is what it does to mercy. It casts it aside, then walks way. It leaves people who need mercy most to fend for themselves and castigates those who offer mercy as spiritual compromisers who water down the gospel. That’s because legalists have always viewed the application of mercy as selling out. They love the idea of mercy, but they want to limit when it’s offered and whom it’s offered to.”
