“. . . apart from the gospel and outside of Christ the law is my enemy and condemns me.  Why? Because  God is my enemy  and condemns me.  But with the gospel and in Christ, united to him by faith, the law is no longer my enemy but my friend. Why? Because now God is no longer my enemy  but my friend, and the law, his will, the law in its moral core, as reflective of his character and of concerns eternally inherent in his own person and so of what pleases him, is now my friendly guide for life in fellowship with God.”

– Richard B. Gaffin, Jr. in Mark Jones’ Antinomianism: Reformed Theology’s Unwelcome  Guest, 54.
