Like an Onion

The Internet Monk has a powerful article about legalism in the Baptist tradition. Now I have never been Baptist but the brand of Mennonitism that I grew up in had some of the same traits while lacking others (especially when it comes to patriotism and supporting war). My spiritual life has been a journey of pealing peeling away the layers of legalism that I grew up with.

Take time to read through the comments because there is a lot of good stuff there, too.

  1. Is “pealing” a campanology pun or a typo?

  2. Typo – should be “peeling”. Thanks for the correction and the lesson on bell ringing (had to look up “campanology”).
