The Difference Between a “Do” Religion & A “Trust” Religion: B.B. Warfield

“Trust and performance are contradictions.  A “Do” religion and a “Trust” religion are irreconcilable.  To demand trust as a condition defeats, therefore, its own object and renders the trust demanded impossible.  If we are to depend on our own trust it ceases to be trust.  We cannot look to ourselves for the decisive act in our salvation and at the same time be looking to God for all.  Trust transformed into a work loses its quality; turned back on itself, it is obliterated.”  (“The ‘Higher Life’ Movement”)
