Why Choose a Deficient Righteousness?

“Since, then, Christ has made an atonement for sin, and brought in everlasting righteousness, why will you glory in yourselves, rather than glory in the Lord?  Why will you trust to your own fancied righteousness, since nothing but pride could tempt you to glory in it?  Your ignorance of Christ’s righteousness hinders your seeing how infinitely perfect it is, and your own self-sufficiency will not let you submit to be saved by it, and therefore you go about to establish your own righteousness”

– William Romaine, “Twelve Discourses on the Law and the Gospel”, p.119
