How to Become a Legalist

  1. Make rules outside the Bible.
  2. Push yourself to try and keep your rules.
  3. Castigate yourself when you don’t keep your rules.
  4. Become proud when you do keep your rules.
  5. Appoint yourself as judge over other people.
  6. Get angry with people who break your rules or have different rules.
  7. “Beat” the losers.

These came out of a sermon by Mark Driscoll, Jesus, the Sabbath Lord

I have not listened to his sermon myself.  Actually, I probably could have come up with his seven points myself since I tend towards legalism at times.  Of greater importance to me, How NOT to be a legalist.  Suggestions welcome for a future post on that topic.
