Patristic Quote of the Day

But the apostle says, "If righteousness were through the law, then Christ died to no purpose" (Gal. 2:21).  What the apostle says of the law, we say of nature to these men. "If righteousness were through nature, then Christ died for no purpose." - St. Augustine, Sermons and Selected Letters, 81.9
