H. A. Baker
Man by study will never find God. The man who trusts the workings of his own mind or the minds of other men will never see the city of God. Man, on the merits of his character, will never walk the golden streets. What a man is, what a man does, or how a man lives has nothing to do with his salvation. On the basis of how good he is, the best man on earth has no more help of heaven than the worst man on earth. Man who trusts in its own character, his own moral goodness, it’s only a modern Pharisee with eyes blinded to the truth.
