A libertine is one who acts without moral restraint while a legalist is one who maintains a strict adherence to the law or to a particular code. Both the libertine and the legalist are carnal, for they are living by the flesh and not the spirit. Sadly, carnality among Christians often plays itself out in sheer carelessness by the libertine and finger pointing by the legalist. The one misjudge their liberty, the other misjudges their brother or sister. Which side do you lean toward?
