What the Law Requires

“The style of the law is, DO.  It does not say, Endeavor to keep the commandment, but it speaks with authority, DO it, and do it perfectly, and in every point, and with all the mind, and with all the soul, and with all the heart, and with all the strength.  Here is no room left for good resolutions, or good endeavors, but an actual performance of the whole law is demanded.  The least failing or short-coming is a transgression, and therefore is an absolute forfeiture of legal righteousness, and of every blessing promised to the perfect keeping of the law.”

– William Romaine, From “Twelve Discourses upon the Law and Gospel”, P.39
