Worth Repeating

“There are very few that ever gave this book of God, the grand character of salvation, one fair reading through: though we profess to have assented to the truth of scripture, as our Lord said, ‘In them we think we have eternal life,’ yet most read them as they would a proclamation, a romance, a play, or novels, that help only to bring them to the devil, but choose not to read God’s book, which is to be our guide to glory; ‘they are they (says Christ) which testify of me: ‘Lord God, convert and change our hearts.’” However, this was spoken in reference to the Old Testament, and certainly shews us, that Christ is the treasure hid in that field, yet, as there are equal proofs of the divinity of the New Testament, the word Holy Scriptures include both, especially as Christ is the antitype of all types, the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, of all divine revelation.”

George Whitefield, 1714-1770
