We sing, and sing rightly too –
“My soul, no more attempt to draw Thy life and comfort from the law,”
for from the law death cometh and not life, misery and not comfort.
“to convince and to condemn is all the law can do.”
O, when will all professors, and especially all professed ministers of Christ, learn the difference between the law and the gospel? Most of them make a mingle-mangle, and serve out deadly potions to the people, often containing but one ounce of gospel to a pound of law, whereas, but even a grain of law is enough to spoil the whole thing.
-Sermon No. 531, “The Warrant of Faith,” Sept. 20, 1863
