Excerpt from "Rahab's Faith"

Many have a 'dead faith' which will ruin their soul.

The faith that will save you is a faith which sanctifies.

"Ah!" says the drunkard, "I like the gospel, sir;
I believe in Christ" then he will go over to the
Blue Lion tonight, and get drunk.
Sir, that is not the believing in Christ that is of any use.
Sir, you speak falsely; you do not truly believe in Christ.

That faith which saves the soul is a real faith,
and a real faith sanctifies men!

You cannot have faith, and yet live in sin.

To believe is to be holy.
The two things must go together.

That faith is a dead faith, a corrupt faith,
which lives in sin that grace may abound.
