Salvation Through Christ Alone

J.C. Ryleby J.C. Ryle

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under Heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

Man is a sinful creature. All children born into the world, whatever their name or nation is–are corrupt, wicked, and defiled in the sight of God.

Human nature is so tainted and corrupt that, left to himself, no man could be save.

There is only one way in which a man or woman must be saved. It is only by our Lord Jesus Christ, through faith; never by our own works and righteousness.

One golden thread runs through the whole Bible–no salvation except by faith in Jesus Christ.

You may think that I am unloving, narrow-minded, bigoted, and so forth; so be it. But you cannot tell me that my doctrine is not that of the Word of God. That doctrine is, “Salvation in Christ to the very uttermost!” But without Christ, there is no salvation at all.

Let it be called intolerant and unloving. No salvation, no way to Heaven–except through Jesus Christ!

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6
