"Our sins are so [bad], and our righteousness is no better...What way, then, what remedy is left unto us? Only this of laying hold on the arm and strength of God in that covenant wherein forgiveness of sin is provided."
-John Owen, "An Exposition of Psalm 130". The Works of John Owen, Volume VI. The Banner of Truth Trust: Carlisle, PA. (1668) 2000. p.475.
