"Let us ever glory in the cross of Christ;
let us regard it as the source of all our hopes,
and the foundation of all our peace.
Ignorance and unbelief may see nothing
in the sufferings of Calvary
but the cruel martyrdom of an innocent man:
faith will see in the death of Jesus
the payment of man's enormous debt to God,
and the complete salvation of all who believe."
-J.C. Ryle [1816-1900] Pastor and Author
