Ethics Can’t Be Separated From Holiness

“If the message is wrong, the life will always be wrong. A false view of life always leads to wrong living and a lower ethical standard, even though you preach ethics. You can’t separate these things. Holiness must never be separated from the Cross. You cannot put New Testament doctrine into compartments and have a special movement for each. They all go together. There is no holiness unless it comes from the crucified Christ. The doctrines of life are inseparable.” –Martyn Lloyd-Jones “2 Peter” (Banner of Truth) p. 132

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
