“It is an infinite righteousness that must satisfy for our sins, for it is an infinite God that is offended by us.
If ever your sin be pardoned, it is infinite mercy that must pardon it.
If ever you be reconciled to God, it is infinite merit must do it.
If ever your heart be changed, and your soul renewed, it is infinite power must effect it.
And if ever your soul escape Hell, and be saved at last, it is infinite grace must save it.”
–Matthew Mead, The Almost Christian Discovered; or, the False Professor Tried and Cast (London: William Baynes and Son, 1825), 241.
