Salvation

When sin becomes disgusting – George MacDonald

When sin becomes disgusting – George MacDonald

The salvation of Christ is a salvation from the smallest tendency or leaning to sin. It is deliverance into the pure air of God’s ways of thinking and feeling. It is a salvation that makes the heart pure with the will and the choice of the heart to be pure. To such a heart, sin is disgusting.

Chief Dangers – William Booth

Chief Dangers – William Booth

I consider that the chief dangers which confront the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, and heaven without hell.

Jesus didn’t die to save us from hell – Leonard Ravenhill

Jesus didn’t die to save us from hell – Leonard Ravenhill

Without holiness, no one shall see the Lord. Jesus didn’t die to save us from hell. That’s a fringe benefit! He died to get total occupation of us … [and to make us] holy in speech … in actions … in everything.

What true repentance is – JC Ryle

What true repentance is – JC Ryle

True repentance begins with KNOWLEDGE of sin. It goes on to work SORROW for sin. It leads to CONFESSION of sin before God. It shows itself before a person by a thorough BREAKING OFF from sin. It results in producing a DEEP HATRED for all sin.

Consummation of an Atoning Savior – Charles Spurgeon

Consummation of an Atoning Savior – Charles Spurgeon

That God might be manifested in the Christ, it may even be that sin was permitted. Assuredly, there could have been no sacrifice on Calvary if there had not first of all been sin in Eden. The whole scheme, the whole of God’s decrees and acts, worked up to the consummation of an atoning Savior.
