Somebody hit the blog hard late yesterday. So there was a lot of stuff brought up out of archive to choose from. This one from the Prince of Preachers looked good.
“If any man here should be in doubt on account of ignorance, let me, as plainly as I can, state the gospel. I believe it to be wrapt up in one word-Substitution. I have always considered, with Luther and Calvin, that the sum and substance of the gospel lies in that one word, Substitution, Christ standing in the stead of man.If I understand the gospel, it is this: I deserve to be lost and ruined; the only reason why I should not be damned is this, that Christ was punished in my stead, and there is no need to execute a sentence twice for sin.”
