All You Have to Do is Die

“The prevailing doctrine of justification  today is not justification by faith alone. It’s not even justification by good works or by a combination of faith and works. The prevailing notion of justification in Western culture today is justification by  death. It’s assumed that all one has to do to be received into the everlasting arms of God is to die.”

~ R.C. Sproul, The Truth of the Cross (Chapter 1, pg. 10)

  1. Great quote, son! I’m enjoying reading The Truth of the Cross with all of you. Do you think your two year old sister will remember any of it? :)
