spurgeon on the law

Like the fascination which attracts the gnat to the candle, though it burns its wings, men by nature fly to the law for salvation, and cannot be kept from seeking life by it. The law can do nothing else but reveal sin and pronounce condemnation upon the sinner, and yet we cannot get men away from it, even though we show them how sweetly Jesus stands between them and it. ~ Charles Spurgeon, Christ’s Glorious Achievements


Perhaps it is a wrong assessment on my part but it seems that many who "follow" Spurgeon are guilty of this, i.e., placing themselves and others under the yoke of the law.
