1987 - Aversion To the Truth Continues

For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together” (Rom. 8:14–17).

Righteousness can only be attained through faith; consequently all things worthy to be preached must tend to justification by faith.”
