"Most of us have been reared and now live under the influence of Galatianism. Protestant theology is for the most part thoroughly Galatianized, in that neither the law nor grace is given its distinct and separate place as in the counsels of God, but they are mingled together in one incoherent system.

It is taught that the law is no longer (as in the divine intent) a ministration of death (2 Cor. 3:7), of cursing (Gal. 3:10), or conviction (Rom. 3:19), because we are taught that we must try to keep it, and that by divine help we may. Nor does grace, on the other hand, bring us blessed deliverance from the dominion of sin, for we are kept under the law as a rule of life despite the plain declaration of Romans 6:14—‘For sin shall not have dominion over you; for ye are not under the law but under grace.’"

Another great post! Having friends who have come out of strict Calvinistic (TULIP) conditioning, this post will greatly benefit them.
