- You place yourself very strictly and rigidly under a religious rule or regulation.
- You believe that something bad will happen to you if you do not follow it strictly.
- You live in FEAR that things will go wrong with you if you allow for flexibility.
Please, note that a part of the real “motive of the Law” was for it to be impossible for you to do everything written therein. The Law tells you that you cannot do one and leave the others; that you must do all. (Galatians 5:3, “Again I testify to every man who gets himself circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole Law.”) At the same time, it was crafted in such a way that made it literally impossible to even do all. It guaranteed your bondage and curses (all kinds of unnecessary problems: mental, emotional, psychological, spiritual, physical, etc).
Galatians 5:1, “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be encumbered once more by a yoke of slavery.”
Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no Law.”
No law: law of tithes, law of Sabbath, law of fashion, etc can stand against the fruit of the Spirit. Please, do you understand this?
