"It is not the uniqueness of 'Christianity' as a system that we defend, but the uniqueness of Christ. ... So, because in no other person but Jesus of Nazareth did God first become human (in his birth), then bear our sins (in his death), then conquer death (in his resurrection) and then enter his people (by his Spirit), he is uniquely able to save sinners. Nobody else has his qualifications."
— John R. W. Stott
"The Gospel is good news of mercy to the undeserving. The symbol of the religion of Jesus is the cross, not the scales."
