(Salvation) 11. Leaves no cloak for sin

By nearly all sin serving professors it is admitted that the Bible requires us to be pure and holy, and to live free from sin.

(Salvation) 2. Deliverance

The entrance of sin into our world has brought in its train indescribable wretchedness. Guilt and remorse sting the conscience and fill the soul with shame.

(Salvation) 6. Salvation twofold

There is a late creed comprising what is called " The Fourfold Gospel." But since we read of nothing of the kind in the old Bible, we may safely conclude that this is "another gospel," a new arrangement.
