Machen Quotes

A couple quotes by Machen that I like:

“The next thing less than the infinite is infinitely less.”

“Modern preachers are trying to bring men into the church without requiring them to relinquish their pride; they are trying to help men avoid the conviction of sin.” Consequently, the church “is busily engaged in an absolutely impossible task—she is busily engaged in calling the righteous to repentance.”

“This is the true order of Christian pedagogy— ‘trust in His redeeming blood’ first, and then ‘try his works to do.’ Disaster always follows when the order is reversed.”
