The Important Doctrine of Christ Crucified by J.C. Ryle
There is no doctrine in Christianity so important as the doctrine of Christ crucified. There is none which the devil tries so hard to destroy.
There is none which it is so needful for our own peace to understand. By ‘Christ crucified,’ I mean the doctrine that Christ suffered death on the cross to make atonement for our sins, that by His death He made a full, perfect, and complete satisfaction to God for the ungodly, and that through the merits of that death all who believe in Him are forgiven all their sins, however many and great, entirely, and forever.
