"I find no such sin as legality in the Bible...
I defy all liberty but liberty to love and serve God, and fear no bondage but bondage to sin..." - John Wesley 1770
"Legality, with most who use that term, really means tenderness of conscience. There is no propriety in the word if one would take it for seeking justification by works.
Considering, therefore, how hard it is to fix the meaning of that odd term, and how dreadfully it has been abused, I think it highly advisable for all the Methodists to lay it quite aside." - John Wesley 1771
"For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit ...why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do the things which I say?" (Luke 6:43,46)
"Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven ... unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 5:19,20 emphasis added)
