A common response by legalists toward the message of God’s grace is “You have to balance grace with truth.” This response reveals legalists have no understanding of grace or Scripture itself. If they did, they would never make such an absurd statement.
Recently, I had a conversation with a legalist about grace. During the conversation he said, “You know Brad, you have to balance grace with truth. It can’t be just all grace.”
This person’s response to grace is the common response by many toward God’s grace, revealing their lack of understanding of Scripture.
