E. J. Waggoner
“There is but one thing in this world that a man needs and that is justification—and justification is a fact, not a theory. It is the gospel.
"That which does not tend to righteousness is of no avail, and not worthy to be preached.
"Righteousness can only be attained through faith; consequently all things worthy to be preached must tend to justification by faith”
(General Conference Daily Bulletin, March 11, 1891, p. 74).
