Do rules rule?

Keith Brenton shares what you might call his personal testimony on rules and temptation. In looking at his own experiences, Keith has come to some insightful conclusions:
I’ve come to terms with the conflict of law versus grace in scripture on the theory that some folks just need rules. Some of them just like rules. They’re comfortable with rules. Rules let them know where the boundaries are. Some folks need rules to help them control themselves. Some folks need rules to help them control others. For them, rules rule.

So, of course, when they read scripture, they see what they like … and they see rules.
Keith's whole article is probably worth your time.
