Rules are there to protect us. When you don't abide by the rules there are consequences. God has rules but some ignore them altogether or rebel and don't want to follow His rules.
Point #1 Rules can be cumbersome (hard). John 8:3-5
Point #2 Rules don't inspire grace (but religion)
John 8:6-11 -When we're tied up by the rules you can't hear properly from God.
Jesus offers grace
Too many rules may cause you to run away Freedom is found in our Lord and savior Jesus Christ
