Quotes from Toplady in this Issue

I can compare some ranting Arminian preachers, who represent salvation as a matter of chance, and press men to help forward their own conversion, upon pain of damnation, to none so well, as to auctioneers; who, with the hammer in their hand, are always bawl­ing out, “Now is your time; now is your time: agoing, agoing, agoing.” Such a method is equally inconsis­tent with the analogy of faith, and subversive of the majesty of the gospel. Shall I order a dead soul to awake, and raise itself to life? Let me rather address the living God, and say, “Awake, and put on thy strength, O arm of the Lord! Breathe on these slain, that they may live!”

If God had not chosen thee in His Son, he would not have called thee by His Spirit: and he that called Thee by His Spirit, will preserve thee to His kingdom.
