The Two Laws: Object, Function, and Duration of Each
With almost unbounded surprise and not a little incredulity did the writer ... hear a rumor to the effect that a few supposed ministers of the gospel were teaching the abolition or change of the law of God,--the then ten commandments... That this is in direct opposition to both the letter and the spirit of the whole gospel of Christ seems evident from a careful consideration of the same. Also that this mesapprehension of the intent of the gospel arises almost wholly from one of two sources, or from both combined, is axiomatic to the well-informed Christian. These two sources are:-- 1. A failure to distinguish between the moral and the ceremonial law of God. 2. A lack of Christian experience,--a conformity to the law of sin and antagonism to the law of God. Hence the necessity for something to be written covering these two points. Not, therefore, a desire for controversy, but the tenderest love for those whom Christ died, is the motive prompting the writing of these lines.
