Reasonable Christian: Quote of the Day: Archbishop Thomas Cranmer


Such is the true faith, that the Scripture doth so much commend, the which when it seeth and considereth what God hath done for us, is also moved through continual assistance of the Spirit of God, to serve and please him, to keep his favor, to fear his displeasure, to continue his obedient children, showing thankfulness again by observing or keeping his commandments, and that freely, for true love chiefly, and not for dread of punishment, or love of temporal reward, considering how clearly, without deservings we have received his mercy and pardon freely. 

 -- Archbishop Thomas Cranmer, English Reformer and martyr of the Protestant faith.
