D. Scott Meadows

The biblical testimony to angels is judged to be superstitious and unbelievable. This skeptical, secular spirit infects even true Christians. In this letter, Newton reminds us that angels are real and that good angels are sent by God to promote our salvation.

Sin: An Infinite Evil

William S. Plumer

Tell me what you think of sin, and I will tell you what you think of God, of Christ, of the Spirit, of the divine Law, of the blessed gospel, and of all necessary truth.

He who sees no sin in himself will feel no need of a Savior.

We grow up in the midst of these things, and are accustomed to have them without trouble. And the consequence is that we often hold them very cheap, and underrate the extent of our mercies. Let us take heed to our own spirit in the use of sacred things. —J.C. Ryle

A true saint carries Christ in his heart and the cross in his shoulders. —Thomas Watson
