“If we don’t teach the Gospel as clearly as the New Testament does. If we assume that people understand this. If we leave this doctrine behind everything will go to vinegar.
We all by nature will get up Monday morning thinking that we are good people who need religion to help us do better.
That is the religion of the natural man and woman. That is my tendency.
I have to be constantly be taught again and again and again, hearing it from the minister’s mouth Sunday after Sunday after Sunday. I have to hear that the Gospel has nothing to do with me (my works that are filthy rags) and everything to do with Christ (his perfect righteousness imputed to the sinner).” – Michael Horton, 2005 lecture on Justification at Wscal.
