- Christian Life
When it comes to church involvement, many in previous generations struggled with legalism. Today many struggle with the opposite–license. Legalists need to learn Christian liberty. Those struggling with license–freedom abused–need to learn not liberty per se, but spiritual discipline.
So how does this “revolution” foster the spiritual discipline of submitting to authority and following leadership we don’t always agree with? Instead, does it substitute biblical leadership with self-leadership, which means doing whatever you want, i.e. not having to submit to someone else because “I know better”?
