Law and Gospel

“The difference between the law and gospel does not at all consist in this, that the one requires perfect doing, the other only sincere doing, but in this, that the one requires doing, the other not doing but believing for life and salvation.  Their terms are different, not only in degree, but in their whole nature.” Walter Marshall, The Gospel Mystery of Sanctification (Welwyn, 1981), page 76.
