The assumptions of the lawman about the graceman

Those who count on the motivation that comes from guilt and fear will assume that your "emphasis on grace" is deceptive and that you are turning your back on "serving the Lord" or "pleasing the Lord". You remember what it's like to be caught up in the "confess and sin" cycle, right? The problem was that you didn't realize that the cycle was CAUSED by thing that was supposed to help break it! Every "sin-cycle" we get caught in causes a similar blindness so that we ASSUME that those who are not running on the same wheel we are must not be taking their responsibility seriously. It's nuts! It's irrational! But it's called LAW and it desires to suck the life out of us under the pretense of strengthening us.
