When we realize that a fellow believer is trying to earn their salvation by obeying rules, we need to emphasize for them the freedom that they have in Jesus Christ. We should encourage them to not let anyone bind them or limit their freedom, by having them do things that the Bible doesn’t tell them to do. So, join us to find out what it means for our brothers and sisters in Christ to “oppose themselves” as believers on today’s Treasured Truth.
