CQOD: 10/28/07 -- Ryle: from the Reformation

Christian Quotation of the Day

October 28, 2007
Feast of Simon & Jude, Apostles
    As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him.
    -- 2 Samuel 22:31 (NIV)

    Let men say what they will, or pick holes where they may, they will never succeed in disproving these facts. To the Reformation, Englishmen owe an English Bible, and liberty for every man to read it. To the Reformation, they owe the knowledge of the way of peace with God, and of the right of every sinner to go straight to Christ by faith, without bishop, priest, or minister standing in his way. To the Reformation, they owe a Scriptural standard of morality and holiness such as our ancestors never dreamed of. For ever let us be thankful for these inestimable mercies.
    ... Bishop J. C. Ryle (1816-1900), Five English Reformers [1960]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I thank You for Your Word written and the Living Word who gives it all its meaning.
