On Fearing God's Wrath

Thomas Wilson quote on fearing God's wrath:

"Men are too apt to flatter themselves that God will not be so severe as He has threatened. This hardens men in sin, and makes them boldly venture upon damnation. This is to represent God as a God not terrible in judgment. Let a just fear of God's vengeance have its proper effect, etc. The Spirit of God makes use of flames, of fire and brimestone, to awaken us, to represent it to us. ... A man has no other security of his virtue, but the fear of offending God." – Thomas Wilson

Quotation from: "Maxims of Piety, and of Christianity" by Thomas Wilson.

"Those whom fear renders weak and cowardly, in the exercise of the ministry, forget that they exercise it in the name ... of Jesus Christ, to whom they must give account." – Thomas Wilson

On Exalting Men Over Christ, Scripture, and Faith:

Thomas Wilson quote on being careful not to exalt Christian pastors, preachers, ministers and teachers of the Gospel over Christ Himself.

"Let us not attribute that to them, which belongs to Christ alone. He died for us, and it is He alone who by his ministers does all for us. We ought not therefore to minister occasions to the fond affections and inclinations of men, lest they should be led to adhere to the ministry of the truth, rather than to the truth itself." – Thomas Wilson

Quotation from: "Maxims of Piety, and of Christianity" by Thomas Wilson.
