John Owen on Christ Not Merely as the Best, Most Pleasant - But the Only Way

April 18, 2015

 

"Consider that if this way of salvation be refused, there is no other way for you.  We do not propose this way of forgiveness as the best and most pleasant, but as the only way.  There is no other name given but that of Christ; no other way but this of forgiveness.  Here lies your choice; take this path or perish for ever.  It is a shame, indeed, unto our cursed nature that there should be any need to use this argument...but seeing it must be used, let it be so.  I intend neither to flatter men nor to frighten them, but to tell them the truth as it is.  If you continue in your present state and condition; if you rest on what you do or what you hope to do; if you support yourselves with general hopes of mercy, mixed with your own endeavours and obedience; if you come not up to a thorough gospel-closure with this way of God; if you make it not your all, giving glory to God therein, - perish you will, you must, and that to eternity.  There remains no sacrifice for your sins, nor way of escape for your souls."
