J.C. Ryle’s Argument for Christianity

JC RYLE

“The religion of Christ must have been from heaven, or it never could have prospered and overspread the earth as it has done.  It is vain for infidels to attempt to answer this argument.  It cannot be answered.  A religion which did not flatter the rich, the great, and the learned,—-a religion which offered no license to the carnal inclinations of man’s heart,—-a religion whose first teachers were poor fishermen, without wealth, rank, or power,—-such a religion could never have turned the world upside down, if it had not been of God.  Look at the Roman emperors and the heathen priests with their splendid temples on the one side!  Look at a few unlearned working men with the Gospel on the other!  Were there ever two parties so unequally matched?  Yet the weak proved strong, and the strong proved weak.  Heathenism fell, and Christianity took its place.  Christianity must be of God.”

One thought on “J.C. Ryle’s Argument for Christianity

  1. Thank you for the reminder of how powerful Christianity really is. I appreciate J.C. Ryle’s simplicity. I have enjoyed his seven volume work on the Gospels, and have used it for our family devotions.
