Sermons of Benjamin Palmer: Law, The Rule of Christ's Kingdom

In the discourse of last Sabbath, I attempted to enforce the first of these two propositions, showing what is meant by the expression "being not without law to God." It becomes necessary that I shall, this morning, discuss the second of these propositions, by showing what is meant by being "under the law to Christ." Evidently the two are distinct, for if the first affirms the perpetuity of God's law, so that, under no circumstances, can it be cancelled; the second clearly implies that the believer's relations are in so far changed to it, that he obeys it in the hands of Jesus Christ as the rule of His Mediatorial kingdom.
