Human vs. Law

The law discovers our sins, and God’s wrath against sin, and places them in our sight; for the Law is not in fault, but our evil and wicked nature, even as a heap of lime is still and quiet until water be poured thereon, but then it begins to smoke and to burn, not that it is the fault of the water, but it is the nature and kind of the lime, which will not endure water; but if oil be poured upon it, then it lies still and burns not.  Even so it is with the Law and Gospel.

/Martin Luther/

  1. Love this quote! There’s nothing wrong with the law, it simply shows us for what we are. Nice!
