The Christian Life

To be risen with Christ means not only that one has a choice and that one may live by a higher law–the law of grace and love–but that one *must* do so. The first obligation of the Christian is to maintain their freedom from all supersitions, all blind taboos and religious formalities, indeed from all empty forms of legalism.
