Fig Leaves, Lies and the Grace of God

series: Matt Chandler, Village Church

Galatians attacks the two false ideas about fullness that have Jesus' name on them. Galatians is going to deconstruct legalism, the idea that, I can control God's affection for me by my behavior, that I will earn his approval by what I do. It's an outside-in type of religion that says, I ultimately control God. The other error is really the error of license, or God ultimately does not know what's best for me. I know what's best for me. I'll set my own rules, and I'll live my own way. Both legalism and license fail to trust God at his Word.
