Quote to Consider
Belgic Confession 25: The Abolishing of the Ceremonial Law
We believe that the ceremonies and figures of the law ceased
at the coming of Christ, and that all the shadows are
accomplished; so that the use of them must be abolished
amongst Christians; yet the truth and substance of them
remain with us in Jesus Christ, in whom they have their
completion. In the meantime we still use the testimonies
taken out of the law and the prophets, to confirm us in the
doctrine of the gospel, and to regulate our life in all
honesty to the glory of God, according to His will.
