“error in a believer has more influence within the church than error in an unbeliever has.”
William G.T. Shedd, Dogmatic Theology

“if there be no love of righteousness, there is no anger at sin, and, conversely, if there be no anger at sin, there is no love of righteousness.”
William G.T. Shedd, Dogmatic Theology

“Because God has originated the power’s and capacities of a creature from nothing, he is entitled to all the agency of these faculties without paying for it; as the artificer of a watch is entitled to all the motion of the watch, without coming under obligation to the watch. Even this comparison is inadequate; for the maker of the watch did not create the materials out of which it is made. But God creates the very substance itself out of which man’s faculties of mind and body are made.”
William G.T. Shedd, Dogmatic Theology
