Can we define legalism, or is it simply anyone stricter than I am? Here are a few examples of what some might call legalism: 1. I believe I should dress up for church, but don't necessarily think everyone else should. 2. I believe I should dress up for church, and I think other people should too, but I don't say anything. 3. I believe that it would be wrong for me to go to a movie, but I think other Christians have to decide for themselves. 4. I believe Christians should not go to movies. 5. I believe that I should not preach except in a white shirt or tie, but that other preachers can preach in different colors 6. I believe no preacher should preach in a blue shirt, only a white shirt with a tie. Please give your definitions and reasons for what you consider "legalism."
