John Stott on the Gospel and Condemnation

"In (Paul's) scheme of salvation the function of the law is to expose and condemn sin and so to keep sinners locked up in their guilt until Christ comes to liberate them through faith. In this way the gospel and the law dovetail with each other since the gospel justifies those whom the law condemns".

John R W Stott - "BST Series - The Message of Romans" - IVP, Leicester (1994) - (p121).
