First of all I would like to explain the name and why I choose it.
A Christian proselyte was and is a gentile (Acts 2:10; 6:5) who has been spiritual converted to a form or sect of Judaism (in Christ Jesus or Yeshua) from a paganistic religion or from pagan ideas from that religion in which they are from. As in the case of the early believers from the book of Acts, they were converted to a sect of Karaite /Judaism known as the Nazarenes in whom Paul was the ring leader of (Acts 24:5); later to be known as Christians (Acts 11:26).
Secondly, please do not judge me wrongly as having a gospel of works. The Bible say that we are saved by grace not by our own works, which I totally agree with. But if we are truly saved by this gift that we call grace, it will teach us to say no to ungodliness or worldly pleasure (Titus 2:12) or it teaches us to be holy like God is (1Peter 1:15-16). The Bible is God’s instruction book or His standards on how we as Christians are to be holy. So when I hear Christians say that we are no longer under the law, I just hear an excuse for not needing to be holy anymore, and we can live our lives the way we want now that we are free from that Jewish law. Remember that true grace will manifest obedience toward His word, not anarchy and disobedience.
Also, when we read that we are no longer under the law but under grace, this simply means that we are no longer under the punishment that that law demands for breaking it which is death. We have been forgiven by the grace of God, but the law itself is still existence as Jesus declared in Matthew 5:17. Christianity therefore is still a sect or form of that Karaite /Jewish religion like it our not.
Is it legalism to teach that people who have saving faith will obey God? To teach that he will be our top priority, that everything will be counted a loss compared to Christ (Phil. 3:7-9)? Is it legalism to teach that because of God's mercy we choose to willingly offer our lives as living sacrifices for him (Rom. 12:1-2)? To teach that if you choose to be a Christian you will stop living for yourself, live for God, and become a new creation (2 Cor. 5:15, 17)? Is it really legalism to share with people the Biblical requirements of holiness (1 Peter 1:14-17)--that without it we will not see God (Heb. 12:14)? If so then Jesus, Paul, Peter, James, John and others would also need to be accused of legalism. However, so often this is what we hear: "You are being legalistic!"
