Legalism in Christian Theology, is the view that one places an over emphasized requirement on conduct and good deeds (while focusing on the Law instead of Grace by faith) as the only beneficial way one can obtain eternal salvation. In other words, legalists focus more on the Law than Grace. It is the opposite of Sola Fide, which maintains the view that belief in Jesus Christ is the only way one can obtain eternal life.
