The Word “Christian”

The meaning of the word “Christian” has been reduced to practically nothing. Surely, there is no word that has been so devalued unless it is the word “God” itself.

— Francis Schaeffer

Good News (Martin Luther)

So tenaciously should we cling to the world revealed by the gospel, that were I to see all the angels of heaven coming down to me to tell me something different, not only would I not be tempted to doubt a single syllable, but I would shut my eyes and stop my ears, for they would not deserve to be either seen or heard.

Martin Luther

Christ’s Death (J. C. Ryle)

It is true that we are sinners – but Christ has suffered for us. It is true that we deserve death – but Christ has died for us. It is true that we are guilty debtors – but Christ has paid our debts with His own blood. This is the real Gospel! On this let us lean while we live. To this let us cling when we die. Christ has been “lifted up” on the cross, and has thrown open the gates of heaven to all believers.

J. C. Ryle

Christianity (Vance Havner)

Salt seasons, purifies, preserves. But somebody ought to remind us that salt also irritates. Real living Christianity rubs this world the wrong way.
