One response to this post.

  1. The part that pricked my conscience was this:

    “There are many today, who believe the Bible, yet read it very little. Does your conscience tell you that you are one of these persons?”

    Ummmm, yea. That’s me. Ouch.

    Nothing like a John Charles Ryle quote to point us to Christ and strengthen us in our sanctification.
