Not Only Distinguished, But Separated

“In the affair of justification, the law as a covenant of works is not only to be distinguished, but to be separated from the gospel.  When a true believer is at any time in doubt of his justification and title to eternal life, he ought to set the law as a covenant, and the works of the law, entirely aside, and to rely anew, for all his title to life eternal, on the spotless righteousness of the second Adam offered to him in the gospel”.

-John Colquhoun, From his Treatise on the law and the Gospel, P.156-157.
