All who believe in Him are, even while they live, completely forgiven and justified from all things – are reckoned completely righteous before God. . .We hold that an experiential knowledge of Christ crucified and interceding is the very essence of Christianity and that, in teaching men the Christian religion, we can never dwell too much on Christ Himself and can never speak too strongly of the fullness, freeness, presentness, and simplicity of the salvation there is, in Him, for everyone who believes. . .We say that life eternal is to know Christ, believe in Christ, abide in Christ, have daily heart communion with Christ by simple, personal faith, and that everything in religion is useful so far as it helps forward the life of faith, but no further. – J. C. Ryle (1816-1900)
