alien righteousness

John Calvin: Law and Gospel – In Justification, “they ought to give no place to the law.”

“Removing, then, mention of law, and laying aside all consideration of works, we should, when justification is being discussed, embrace God’s mercy alone, turn our attention from ourselves, and look only to Christ….If consciences wish to attain any certainty in this matter, they ought to give no place to the law.” (Calvin Institutes 3.19.2.) Quote via Horton’s Covenant and Salvation: Union with Christ.
