Filthy Rags

“All are righteousnesses are but filthy rags” Isa.64:6.  Rags they are; and, therefore, cannot cover our nakedness: filthy they are; and, therefore, need a covering for themselves.  To think to cover filth by filth, is nothing else but to make both more odious in the sight of God”.

-Ezekiel Hopkins, from his The Doctrine of the Two Covenants”, p.26
