Through Faith They Still Speak (7/26/05)

"A woman said to me after hearing me preach on sin, 'You make me feel so big (holding her fingers an inch apart).' I was shocked and replied, 'Lady, that is too big; much too big, fatally big. You and I are a minus quantity, and all fallen mankind with us. Justification can only be by faith alone.'" (John Gerstner, in Don Kistler, editor, Justification by Faith ALONE [Morgan, Pennsylvania: Soli Deo Gloria Publications, 1996], p. 108)
