God's work or our pettiness?

I'm looking for a job, so I won't quote too many details on this blog. But John Schroeder is right on target when he writes about "Cussin' and Fightin' and Carryin' On" and its relationship to evangelism:
Legalism is an ugly, ugly thing. Wasn't that the very heart and soul of Christ's ministry? Some, like Judas, expressed regret that Christ did not come to overturn Rome. That's because He did come to overturn the ridiculous legalism that had grown up within the ecclesiastical confines of His chosen race. . . . My heart hurts when I see us stand in the way of God's good work with our own pettiness.
Amen. I recommend reading John's whole article.
