The First General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church

"The method of cleansing, is twofold.   (1) Christ, by daily destroying our sins for which He once [and for all] made atonement by His blood — offers and presents us, pure and righteous, in the sight of the Father….   {2) mortifying the desires of the flesh by His Spirit, He reforms us in sanctity….

"It would not be such a difficult thing to satisfy the Moral Law — if it were satisfied only with bodily obedience, and did not demand Spirit-ual righteousness….   But we must not listen to any human voice that is in opposition to the judgment of the Spirit of God!
