The Law and The Gospel

One interesting writer I have come across, (of course I am always the last one to discover good writers) says:

“Men are not turning to Christ because they have no sense of sinning against the Lord. They are not convicted of sin because they don’t know what sin is. They have no concept of sin because the law of God is not being preached. You cannot improvise a hasty sop, ‘All men have sinned.’ You must dwell on the subject at length. Exposit the ten commandments until men are slain thereby [Romans 7:11]. When you see that men have been wounded by the law, then it is time to pour in the balm of Gospel oil. It is the sharp needle of the law that makes way for the scarlet thread of the Gospel.” ~Walter Chantry, Today’s Gospel Authentic or Synthetic

    Mr. Chantry sounds like Martin Luther. We need more of this type of message as an antidote to the false preaching that is going on today is what is called Christian Churches.
