William Sclater on the Sufficiency and Efficiency of Christ’s Death

February 12, 2009

Sclater:

Let us therefore as many as desire to know our reconciliation with God through Christ, prove ourselves whither we be in the faith or not [1 Cor. 13:5]: the old distinction of the School-men borrowed of Augustine, in question touching the extent of Christ’s merit, may in fit place be discussed: this once is agreed on all sides, except the Chilasts, that howsoever there be a sufficiency of worth in Christ’s merit to reconcile all; yet the efficacy thereof reaches only to such as believe. It concerns us therefore for our comfort, diligently to try and examine our confidence.

(London: Printed by T.C. for Nicolas Fussell and Humphrey Mosley, and are to be sold at the Ball in Paus Church yard, near the Great North Doore, 1629), 3221.
