“All modes of preaching must be erroneous, which do not lead sinners to feel that the great thing to be done, and done first, is to receive the Lord Jesus Christ, and to turn to God through him. And all religious experience must be defective, which does not embrace distinctly a sense of the justice of our condemnation, and a conviction of the sufficiency of the work of Christ, and an exclusive reliance upon it as such.”
 
– Charles Hodge, quoted in William S. Plumer, Commentary on Paul’s Epistle to the Romans (New York: Anson D. F. Randolph & Co., 1870), 144.
