J. C. Philpot(1802-1869)
Deeply soul-humbling, richly Christ-exalting, experimental teaching.
“My desire is to exalt the grace of God; to proclaim salvation alone through Jesus Christ; to declare the sinfulness, helplessness and hopelessness of man in a state of nature; to describe the living experience of the children of God in their trials, temptations, sorrows, consolations and blessings.”
“Man’s religion is to build up the creature.
God’s religion is throw the creature down in the
dust of self-abasement, and to glorify Christ.”
“If we can throw any light on the word of truth, if we can enable our readers more clearly to understand, more firmly to believe, and more experimentally to feel the power of what God has revealed in the Scriptures for their instruction, edification, and consolation, that will be our chief reward, as, we hope, it is our chief aim.”
