Faith in Christ

“Faith in Christ, is faith in the declarations of the Gospel concerning Christ; and it is faith in these as coming from God. It is the receiving of God’s testimony concerning his Son; and, in this view of it, we see the great sinfulness of unbelief; for he who believeth not, hath made God a liar. We see, also, how firm a foundation is laid for strong faith. The Gospel is the Word God that can not lie. Our senses may deceive us; and the deductions of our reason may be false. Relying on these, we may err, in things pertaining to the present life; but, in laying hold on life eternal, we may believe the truth of God with unwavering confidence. His word cannot fail.”
–from, Doctrine Concerning Jesus Christ, Manual of Theology, J.L. Dagg
