The Greatest Error

“There is, perhaps, no more subtle or plausible error, on the subject of justification, than that which makes it rest on the indwelling presence, and the gracious work of the Holy Spirit in the heart…nothing can be more unscriptural in itself, or more pernicious to the souls of men, than the substitution of the gracious work of the Spirit in us, for the vicarious work of Christ for us, as the ground of our pardon and acceptance with God”.

James Buchanan, from his The Doctrine of Justification,P.401-402 (1961)
