sinner

Let them leap to hell

I don’t often post stuff midweek, but this quote is worth reading.

If sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our bodies. And if they will perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees, imploring them to stay. If hell must be filled, at least let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go there unwarned and unprayed for.

C.H. Spurgeon

One thing I know

There are only two things of which I am sure: one is, that I am a miserable sinner; and the other, that Christ is an all-sufficient Saviour.

John Newton

Presumably based on that quote:

I remember two things very clearly. I’m a great sinner and Christ is a great Saviour.

John Newton in the film Amazing Grace (2006)

Was Newton’s a Biblical prespective?

One thing I know: that though I was blind, now I see.

A man born blind, John 9:25

For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
