“The NT is never interested in conduct and behavior in itself. I can go further and say that the NT does not make an appeal for good behavior to anyone but to Christian people. The NT is not interested, as such, in the morality of the world. It tells us quite plainly that you can expect nothing from the world but sin, and that in its fallen condition it is incapable of anything else. In Titus 3.3 Paul tells us that we were all once like that….Thus there is nothing so fatuous and so utterly futile, as to turn to such people and appeal to them to live a Christian life….The truth is, it has only one message for people like that— the message of repentance.” Martin Lloyd-Jones Faith on Trial, p. 63.
