Excerpt from Commentary on Paul's Epistle to Romans: With an Excursus on the Famous Passage in James (Chap. II.: 14-26)
Let our Preface deal with samples, therefore. We are con tent that way. If they are new, they should be watched. If they are true, they should be treasured. But if they are both new and true, that is not what has roused us to the work. These and a multitude of others are not simply new texts, adding, if they are supported by the Greek, new paragraphs to the Word of God, but they bring to bay a concerted system of mistakes. Protestantism has ascribed too little morality to God, and demanded too little morality of men. Paul has been the arch-priest of horrors, and the world is beginning to move. To sweeten Paul is not only hermeneutically right, but theologically the thing required, as the curse of the Reformed just now is, that they build Rome with a faith that has no works, and place at the top of their creed Sovereignty instead of Holiness.
