How are we to face legalism in the church? How are we to face legalism in our own hearts? Paul, upon returning to Jerusalem, is instructed to participate in a Jewish custom primarily for appearance reasons. So why doesn’t Paul resist this request made by James and the church elders? Why doesn’t he speak of the law of Christ as he does in his epistles? It is for the sake of the gospel. Pastor Nate spends time looking further into Acts 21:15-26.
