The Only Alternative...

Here is D.A. Carson's conclusion to his exposition of the Sermon on the Mount (in Matthew's Gospel):

"The sermon ends with what has been implicit throughout it -- the demand for radical submission to the exclusive lordship of Jesus, who fulfills the Law and Prophets and warns the disobedient that the alternative to total obedience, true righteousness, and life in the kingdom is rebellion, self-centeredness, and eternal damnation."

-- Expositor's Bible Commentary, p. 194 (Zondervan: 1984)
