You have to renounce one or the other

Posted: March 14, 2012 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, Discipleship, The Christian Life

If you desire to be justified before God, you must either bring to him a perfect righteousness of your own, and wholly renounce Christ; or else you must bring the perfect righteousness of Christ, and wholly renounce your own.”

– Edward Fisher, The Marrow of Modern Divinity (Christian Focus, 2009), 111
