On Law

A new and more powerful proclamation of law is perhaps the most pressing need of the hour; men would have little difficulty with the gospel if they had only learned the lesson of the law. As it is, they are turning aside from the Christian pathway; they are turning to the village of Morality, and to the house of Mr. Legality, who is reported to be very skillful in relieving men of their burdens ... 'Making Christ Master' in the life, putting into practice 'the principles of Christ' by one's own efforts-these are merely new ways of earning salvation by one's obedience to God's commands.

Thanks for your Machen Blog. Do you have anyplace with a link for us to contact you (short of commenting on a given entry, as I have here)? I wanted to share a resource that you may want to write about. Your about page here has no email address or contact form.

Besides responding to my offer of one resource, as a comment reply here that I'll receive by email, I hope you'll also consider the larger question of adding some way for interested readers to share ideas, if you'd like them, of course. :-) Just trying to help.
