Christ Your Whole Redemption

Posted: April 5, 2011 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, The Christian Life

from the Daily Reading George Whitfield

There is nothing lovely or desirable in man; his heart is a sink of pollution, full of sin and uncleanness.  Yet our modern, polite preachers tell us, that there is a fitness in men, and that God, seeing you a good creature, gives you his grace.  But this, though it is a modern, polite and fashionable way of talking, is very unscriptural.  Many pulpits ring of nothing more than doing no one any harm, living honestly, loving your neighbor as yourselves, and doing what you can, and then Christ is to make up the deficiency.  This is making Christ to be half a Savior, and man the other part; but I say, Christ will be your whole righteousness, your whole wisdom, your whole sanctification, or else he will never be your whole redemption.

-George Whitfield

  1. Man’s heart is such a wreck and ruin, Eccles.9:3 & Jer.17:9. et. al., taht only a heart transplant will do to cure man’s situation. God says, “I will take away the heart of stone and give him a heart of flesh, to know me.” Mr. Whitefield is perhaps the greatest of preachers since the NT.

  2. Charlie says:

    It is always good to see that the problems that beset the church today are seldom new.
