The Central Message

08:23

'If a body calling itself 'church' loses this central message of justification, it will soon have no good news to present. It will become another superstitious, religious institution, falsely bearing the name of Christian. What is more, the people will continue to be in the dark, heading for hell, while at the same time trusting in a Jesus of faulty human thought and heretical church tradition.'

Philip H. Eveson, The Great Exchange: Justification by Faith Alone in the light of recent thought (Leominster: Day One, 1996), p.175
