John Owen on Vol. 5

‎”We are justified by faith alone, but we are not justified by that faith which can be alone. Alone, respects its influence into our justification, not its nature and existence. And we absolutely deny that we can be justified by that faith which can be alone. That is without a principle of spiritual life and universal obedience operative in all the works of it as duty doth require.” — John Owen, Works Vol. 5 pg 73
