You Just Want to Do What You Want to Do

I know some of you out there think people just find good-sounding arguments to defend doctrine that lets them do what they want to do.
Stop and think about your mindset for a moment. If you think this way, then what you are really saying is that the more a rule restricts you from things you do like and makes you do things you don't like, the better it is.
Where'd you get that idea? It directly contradicts Colossians 2:20-23. (If you think this passage is speaking positively about ordinances that have a "shew of wisdom" then you need to set down the KJV which you evidently don't understand and pick up a modern version.)

It is the mark of Pharisee to judge your doctrine by it's strictness. If this is you, you are a legalist. If you think legalism is only about salvation, you are a legalist. I make these statements emphatically and unapologetically, and I welcome your dissent and argument in order that I may prove these things to you more fully.
