Words to Ponder …..

The Reformation found Englishmen steeped in ignorance and left them in possession of knowledge. It found them blind and left them seeing. It found them without Bibles and left them with a Bible in every parish. It found them priest-ridden and left them enjoying the liberty which Christ bestows. It found them strangers to saving faith, and grace, and holiness and left them with the key to those things in their hands. It found them slaves and left them free.

– J.C. Ryle

1816 – 1900

    Bob,

    Solid quote by J.C. Ryle. I thought you and your readers might enjoy some more Christ-centered, gospel-saturated quotes from my relatively new site, J.C. Ryle Quotes.

    Be encouraged and strengthened by these God-centered quotes by John Charles Ryle, penned over a hundred years ago. I trust Ryle will continue to point you to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through his writings.

    Though he be dead, he yet speaks.

    Keep up the insightful posts/links.

    Soli Deo Gloria!
    To God Alone Be the Glory!

    ~ Erik
