John Owen on How Most Folks Imagine Salvation By Grace Below Their Paygrade

April 17, 2015

 

"Who would not think, now, that the whole world would run in to be made partakers of these terms, willingly accepting of them?  But it proves for the most part otherwise.  Men like not this way...Men think within themselves, that had it been some great thing that was required of them that they might be saved, they would with all speed address themselves thereunto; but to come to God by Christ, to be freely forgiven, without more ado, they like it not...This of mere pardon in and by the cross, it is but folly...Let men say what they will, and pretend what they please, yet practically they like not this way of forgiveness."

 

-John Owen, "An Exposition of Psalm 130".  The Works of John Owen, Volume VI.  The Banner of Truth Trust: Carlisle, PA.  (1668) 2000.  pp.524-525.
