Hold fast... {J.C.Ryle}

Trouble or no trouble—pains or no pains—controversy, or no controversy—one thing is very sure: that nothing but Christ's Gospel will ever do good to our own souls. 
Nothing else will maintain our Churches. 
Nothing else will ever bring down God's blessing upon our land. 
If, therefore, we love our own souls, or if we love our country's prosperity, or if we love to keep our Churches standing, we must remember the Apostles words, and "hold fast," hold firmly the Gospel, and refuse to let it go! 
~ J.C. Ryle

  4. So true. Unfortunately, I have sat in reformed churches where the gospel has not been preached faithfully; where I have walked out thinking, "A Rabbi could have preached that." Or feeling like I was lectured at.
