Where shall we hide our blushing face?

(Octavius Winslow) There is much indeed in ourselves of which we have reason truly to be ashamed, and to be filled with profound self abhorrence. We have need to be ashamed . . . of our unbelief; of our low thoughts of the Savior; of our little love to God; of our slow advance in […]

A fictitious god? Winslow’s, “The Enmity of the Carnal Mind” “The carnal mind is enmity against God.” Romans 8:7 How completely this declaration sweeps away all the fancied reverence and admiration for God which floats before the imagination of the carnal mind in its profound slumber! The carnal mind may own its belief in the […]

The new birth is a DIVINE and SUPERNATURAL work. Holy ancestry does not insure it, pious parentage does not convey it, human eloquence does not inspire it, moral persuasion does not produce it. As high as the heavens are above the earth, so high is the accomplishment of this work above created power. How clear does the […]
