The best place in the Bible to learn about legalism is Galatians and according to chapters 4-5 there is a legalism that is tied to salvation and a legalism that is tied to sanctification which is explained in chapter 4 especially. People often confuse the two. Last week in SS we are going through a BJU study guide book on Galatians and a question was asked about if personal standards can be legalistic and I said most definitely yes and went on to explain a legalism tied to sanctification using music standards (no drums in church), offering (in the back or standard), alcohol, and tithing. My answer did not impress the pastor but caused some tension, despite just answering what I had written down in the book! You see the pastor thinks that legalism can only be tied to salvation and a legalism tied to sanctification does not exist, yet the church separates from other bible believing churches in the area that have drums in worship!!!!!! I think that some Christians have the term legalism confused..
