Sin makes man a destroyer

“Man is a suicide – he has destroyed himself; a homicide – his influence destroys others; a deicide – he would, were it in his power, annihilate the very being of God. What a proof of this have we in the crucifixion of the Son of God! When God brought himself as near to man as Infinity could approach, he exclaimed, ‘This is the Heir; come, let us kill him!’ and they proceeded to consummate the crime by nailing him to the tree.”

Octavius Winslow, No Condemnation in Christ Jesus (Banner of Truth: 1853/1991), p. 93. Online edition.

  1. WOW, Tony, I was wondering if you guys( you and CJ) ever read Winslow? Now, I see you do. Now I can Sleep!!!
    I just got “Atonement and the cross” by Winslow. This book is the BEST on the cross. Check into it. The Glory of the Redeemer is GREAT too.
    Your Winslow Buddy, Mark
