11 Christ Alone Quotes

“If you want to make atonement to [God] apart from Christ the mediator, making your works…the mediation between Him and yourself, you will inevitably fall as Lucifer did…and in horrible despair lose God and everything.” – Martin Luther

“In Christ alone means all of Christ – everything taught about Christ in the entire Scriptures – and it means Christ and no one else.” – Albert Mohler

“It is to Christ alone that I must be faithful.  I must be exclusively devoted to Jesus Christ above all else.” – Trevin Wax

“Faith is no faith without an object.” – Martin Luther

“The summary of the gospel is that our Lord Christ, true Son of God, has made known to us the will of his Heavenly Father and has redeemed us from death and reconciled us with God by his guiltiness.  Therefore, Christ is the only way to salvation of all who were, are now, or shall be.” – Huldrych Zwingli

“We are forgiven for Christ’s sake, who alone is the mediator to reconcile the Father.” – Philip Melanchthon

“For Calvin, the Christian life is a daily feeding upon these riches.  We never move on from the gospel, but grow more deeply into its nourishing soil, thereby bearing the fruit of love and good works.  The supreme gift in this union is Christ himself, but he brings his gifts with him.” – Michael Horton

“Christ if full of grace, life, and salvation.  The soul is full of sins, death, and damnation.  Now let faith come between them and sins, death, and damnation will be Christ’s, while grace, life, and salvation will be the soul’s; for if Christ is a bridegroom, he must take it upon himself the things which are his bride’s and bestow upon her the things that are his…Who then can fully appreciate what this royal marriage means?  Who can understand the riches of the glory of this grace?  Here this rich and a divine bridegroom Christ marries this poor, wicked harlot, redeems her from all her evil, and adorns her with all his goodness.  Her sins cannot not destroy her, since they are laid upon Christ and swallowed up by him.  And she has that righteousness in Christ, her husband, of which she may boast as of her own and which she can confidently display alongside her sins in the face of death and hell and say, ‘if I have sinned, yet my Christ, in whom I believe, has not sinned, and all his is mine and all mine is his.” – Martin Luther

“Faith must be taught correctly, namely, that by it you are so cemented to Christ that He and you are as one person, which cannot be separated but remains attached to Him forever.” – Martin Luther

“The reason we are able to forget our union with Christ is that we have yet to experience the full glory of what it will mean.  For now, we are members of Christ’s body, but we still wander, our bodies still ache, and we shall still die.” – Reeves and Chester

“The first thing I ask is that people should not make use of my name, and should not call themselves Lutherans but Christians.  What is Luther?  The teaching is not mine.  Nor was I crucified for anyone…How did I, poor stinking bag of maggots that I am, come to the point where people call the children of Christ by my evil name?” – Martin Luther
