Quotes (32)

by

For lack of counting the cost, hundereds of professed converts, under religious revivals, go back to the world after a time and bring disgrace on religion. They begin with a sadly mistaken notion of what is true Christianity. They fancy it consists in nothing more than so-called coming to Christ and having strong inward feelings of joy and peace. And so when they find, after a time, that there is a cross to be carries, that our hearts are decietful, and that there is a busy devil always near us, they cool down in disgust and return to their old sins. And why? Because they had really never known what Bible Christianity is. They had never learned that we must count the cost.
— J. C. Ryle
