Characteristics of Legalism
Here is a good post about legalism and some characteristics that are common among legalists. I appreciate how C. Michael Patton addressed this issue. Right from the start he confessed that we all struggle with the sin of legalism. I found that Patton strikes the nail on the head in identifying the marks of legalism.
It is typical among legalists to separate for anything and everything. This is the way it has been from the beginning. These type of people believe that their opinions about your life have authority over your life. If you don’t abide by their demands, they just won’t fellowship with you anymore. In the end, you have to tip-toe around them, letting them know as little about your life and problems as you can in fear that they may demand change or leave.
