A Crown of Straw

“All the disciplines and severities whereby men think to make satisfaction to the law, are like a crown of straw, that dishonors the head instead of adorning it. But that righteousness which was acquired by the obedience and meritorious sufferings of Christ, and is embraced by faith, is all-sufficient for our justification”.
– William Bates, from his The Harmony of the Divine Attributes, p.247
