Pithy gems from J.C. Ryle #3
- The beginning of the way to Heaven–is to feel that we are on the way to Hell.
- There is a common, worldly kind of Christianity in this day, which many have, and think they have enough–a cheap Christianity which offends nobody, and requires no sacrifice–which costs nothing, and is worth nothing!
- Christian! Your trials, crosses and conflicts are all temporary.
- I am one of those old-fashioned ministers who believe the whole Bible and everything that it contains.
- There are no lessons so useful–as those learned in the school of affliction.
- Christ is never fully valued, until sin is clearly seen. We must know the depth and malignity of our disease, in order to appreciate the great Physician.
