Pristine Grace

Proclaiming the Gospel
by J.C. Philpot

The gospel of God's grace in Christ Jesus is not a thing to be proved, but a truth to be believed. It is not submitted to our reasoning powers as a subject for critical examination; but the gospel is a message from God, addressed to our conscience, feelings, and affections. For this reason, men fond of argument and proving everything by strictly logical deduction generally make very poor preachers. In the scriptures, God does not argue; He proclaims!
