Metro-Spiritual Christianity is Light and Backbonless

"Healthy Christianity can only be maintained where the balance is properly preserved between a faithful exposition of the holy Law of God and a pressing of its claims upon the conscience, and by tenderly preaching the Gospel and applying its balm to stricken hearts.

Where the former predominates to the virtual exclusion of the latter, self-righteous pharisaism is fostered; and where the proclamation of the Gospel ousts the requirements of the Law, antinomian licentiousness is engendered.

During the past 100 years Christendom has probably heard fifty Gospel sermons to one on the Law, and the consequence has indeed been disastrous and deplorable: a light and backboneless religion, with loose and careless walking."

The Esteemed Arthur Pink
