"If you do not begin with utter freedom from the law, if there is one iota of the law where you are not free, you live your whole Christian life in fear of that one rule. Yes, fearful. Fearful that God will not accept you if you fail at that one point. There can be no exception. If you are free of the law, then you are free to be the Lord's. Only then are you utterly free to be the Lord's. All law. All rules. All rightness. All."
"Isn't that dangerous?"
"Dangerous? Perhaps. But to present anything that could take you out of His grace ... that is dangerous. A gospel that presents as a solution Christ, plus one iota of law - that is far less than an uttermost solution. His solution is an uttermost solution. If it is Christ and the dot of an i, then Christ died in vain, for then His deliverance is not utter deliverance. My Lord's solution, my Lord's salvation, is utter. A freedom that is freedom from every possible prohibition does not cause a believer to sin. It is a freedom that sets the believer free to love Him - with all the others in the church - to love HIM with all their hearts."
-Excerpt by Gene Edwards from his book, 'The Silas Diary.'
"For brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself... This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh... If ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law."
