Colquhoun: The Law As Covenant Of Works

The law, then, as a covenant of works, does, in the most authoritative manner, demand from every descendant of Adam who is under it perfect holiness of nature, perfect righteousness of life, and complete satisfaction for sin. And none of the race of fallen Adam can ever enter heaven unless he either answers these three demands perfectly in his own person or accepts by faith the consummate righteousness of the second Adam, who “is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth” (Rom. 10:4).
