"Jesus proclaimed unmistakably that Godís law is so perfect and absolute that no one can achieve righteousness. Yet Godís grace is so great that we do not have to. By striving to prove how much they deserve Godís love, legalists miss the whole point of the Gospel, that it is a gift from God to people who do not deserve it.
The solution to sin is not to impose an even-stricter code of behavior. It is to know God."
