St. Augustine Quote – Justification

“But the statement that ‘the doers of the law shall be justified’ (Romans 2:13) must be so understood, as that we may know that they are not otherwise doers of the law, unless they be justified, so that justification does not subsequently accrue to them as doers of the law, but justification precedes them as doers of the law.”

— St. Augustine; On the Spirit and the Letter, Chapter 45.
