Notable Quote: John Colquhoun

John Colquhoun (1748 – 1827) on the law-gospel distinction …

Every passage of sacred Scripture is either law or gospel, or is capable of being referred either to the one or the other…. If they [critics] blend the law with the gospel or, which is the same thing, works with faith, especially in the affair of justification, they will thereby obscure the glory of redeeming grace and prevent themselves from attaining joy and peace in believing.
