I hear people say it all the time. "If we don't have the law and we don't have rules all hell will break lose."
Well, the way I am seeing it is that most people know nothing else and law is where they have placed their hope. But for those who have encountered the love and the grace of God the Father and the wild freedom that exists in him, how can we not see that law will always warp everything it comes in contact with. How can we not see that where freedom is suppressed everything remains legalistic?
I think it is because we believe the lie and our hope remains placed in something other than the One who is the only hope for the world.
