The Better Garment

“The first Adam’s righteousness was a bright garment that was every way fitted to make creatures stand before God with acceptance in the enjoyment of Eden’s bliss…but the Second Adam’s righteousness is an outshining, glorious robe that is every way fitted to make all those who are clothed with it to stand before the face of God, or in His immediate presence,  with the highest acceptance in the enjoyment of the heavenly paradise, or third heaven’s glory”.

-Joseph Hart, from A Discourse Upon Justification”, p.8-9

  1. Excellent quote. Can “A Discourse Upon Justification” be found online?

    • I honestly don’t know. I also do not remember where I found that quote. Sorry.
