Our Good Works Damn Us

September 18, 2012

If you attend at Bowman, you’ve heard me say that our good works are just as damning as our evil works are. Here is Spurgeon saying the same thing (far more eloquently):

“You will be as surely damned by your righteousness, if you trust in it, as you will by your unrighteousness! Christ, alone, the Gift of the free Grace of God—this is the gate of Heaven—but all self-satisfaction, all boasting, all exaltation of yourself above your fellow men is mischievous and ruinous, and will surely be deadly to your spirit forever.”

C.H. Spurgeon
