Legalists are silly, and they suck

What a dour, unpleasant, and ridiculous atmosphere legalists create:

Someone calls them on it - a woman, oh, my! - and the moralators come out of their dark closets slamming down angry decrees and warnings.

Glowering eyes and low whispers... "We must not suffer this to be..."

No, sorry, we see you. You suck. And read Revelation. Jesus thinks you suck too.

Someone obsessed with Ouspensky's "Fourth Way" shouldn't complain about legalism in others.

How so? Read the Gospels. Jesus teaches us how to be more awake. To act more from God's will. Once regenerated we have ability to do such things. The churchians who commonly disdain any notion of regeneration have no understanding or valuation for Jesus' teachings along these lines. I don't question the work of the Holy Spirit in another person, churchian or not, but I do discern when self-identified Christians, regenerated or not, disdain to make any effort in their sanctification. Once regenerated and justified by faith alone we have ability. This is basic biblical doctrine.

Notice your dishonest language as well. You have no idea if I'm obsessed with anything. I am rather well-known for not being 'obsessed' by anything. Exploit everything, join nothing has been my motto. Some could say that reading the Bible complete seven times as a goal was a bit of an obsession, but you don't want to accuse me of being obsessed with the Bible, do you? Wouldn't play into your accusatory narrative.
