Grace teaches us to deny ungodliness…

“If ever the world is to be made better, it will be by mankind embracing the true doctrines of grace. The history of the world furnishes no instance of a sinner being brought to love holiness, but by a just apprehension of the mild and winning truths of religion. Take an enemy of God to Mount Sinai; let its thunders roll, and he will exceedingly fear and quake, but he will sin on, secretly if not openly. But let any man have a true apprehension of the mercy of God as displayed in the cross of Calvary, and he says of his sins, They shall die.” William Swan Plumer, Romans, p. 301
