Doctrine and Life

"[I]n recent centuries it has been customary to draw a sharp line of distinction between 'doctrine' and 'life.' But such a differentiation is alien to Paul. A doctrine, a gospel, which has no significance for man's life and conduct is not a real gospel; and life and conduct which are not based on that which comes to us in the gospel are not Christian life and Christian conduct."

--Anders Nygren, Commentary on Romans, Carl C. Rasmussen, trans. (Philadelphia: Muhlenberg, 1949) p. 412.
