Item description for The Silent Killers of the Faith: Overcoming Legalism and Performance Based Religion by Stephen Crosby...

Overview
Like poor driving, legalism is the 'other guy's' problem-the idiot is always in the other car. Crosby delivers a powerful punch in this expose on legalism as he shows that is a problem for all of us. It is a silent killer and the author seeks to expose all of its treacherous tentacles. Legal and performance-based religion is the most prevalent, unrecognized, and deleterious malady affecting the individual believer and the Church universal. Crosby exposes the philosophical and practical roots of legal, performance-based religion as well as its subtle influences. Readers will be equipped to not only recognize the problem but to avail themselves of appropriate remedies to free themselves from legalism's infectious disease.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Silent Killers of Faith: Overcoming Legalism and Performance-Based Religion?

Avoid the subtle but deadly trap  Nov 29, 2005
One of the stones that many Christians stumble over is the idea that Jesus wants us to keep a set of rules. This misperception is a subtle but deadly trap by which we are so easily snared. In this book Steve Crosby does a very articulate and biblically solid job of showing that performing to make the Lord Jesus happy is not a New Testament reality. As a Christian, we can have a living relationship with Jesus, and this changes everything. Read this book to see how the New Testament clearly spells out this profound difference, and that our relationship with Jesus provides us with the keys to release from this deadly trap of striving - and the defeat that always follows (Romans 7:15).
 
Profound and Life Changing  Sep 11, 2005
Anyone who really wants to be freed from the deceptive power of leaglism and a spiritual life motivated by performance will benefit from this book. The author has researched it thoroughly by diligent study of the Scriptures, theological works, and contemporary authors. Application of the truth presented in this book can change your whole life. It has mine.
 
Freedom from Impossible Rules  Jul 31, 2005
In Silent Killers, Dr. Crosby hits home on the central issue of modern christianity - legalism. In it, he does an outstanding job of explaining the real truth of the gospel of Christ.

This book brings alive the truth of Paul's teaching; which focuses on living life in harmony with the Holy Spirit, and has nothing to do with following any set of religious rules. The leading of the Holy Spirit, and the life of Christ in you is the fulfillment of the law; and we are no longer bound to live under the weight of perfect adherence to a legal code.

We are freed from the burden of the law; and so are freed to walk joyfully in Christ - and fulfill the law from the inside - not from the outside.

A definite must read!!!
 
Refreshing & Liberating  Jul 18, 2005
In a day and age when church is becoming more and more organized and professional, a book like this one helps bring a clear, refreshing and liberating perspective. I agree with this author wholeheartedly that Jesus has come to release us from the tyranny of trying and set us free to the liberating secret of trusting. My hope is that all the folks that genuinely love the Lord but are contemplating never darkening thte doors of a local church again out of complete and utter exhaustion will some how find a copy of this book before they give up all hope. How true it is that Jesus' yoke is easy and His burden light. Thank you Dr. Crosby for reminding us all that He's already carried our burdens up to calvary and we don't need to dance to impress Him any longer. I highly recommend this book.

Good for all believers, especially leaders within the church  Jul 11, 2005
The author does an excellent job of revealing legalism in several forms, in several places, including many "blind spots" that exist within typical church communities. This is a real eye-opener for all believers, but especially for leaders within a church who perhaps can fall prey to a performance-base mindset due to the behavior they're expected to model as leaders. Includes tools to both diagnose and rise above the legalistic/performance-based spirit. It helped me overcome my feelings of failure to live up to Christ's perfect standard and reawakened the joy I feel in my relationship with Him. An enjoyable read - combines solid theology, research, and exegesis with entertaining/illuminating analogies found in the "real world".
