The first chapter of Haldane's book reminded me of Proverbs 17:15, "He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD." Paul Washer said in one of his sermons ( I cannot remember which) that the greatest problem that sinners face is the fact that God is good. If he is good, he cannot forgive us. Yet, in his infinite wisdom, he orchestrated the perfect plan to reconcile justice and mercy.
This quote stood out to me as I was reading. It has caused to consider how the entirety of our lives is to be affected by the fact at all our life is derivative, coming from Christ.
"Jesus is the head of a new creation, the members of which are all partakers of eternal life—a life not derived from Adam, but from the Son of God, of the perpetuity of which His life is the assured pledge (Joh 14:19)."
