Philpot's Points

"The fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is." 1 Corinthians 3:13
How careful and anxious we should be to have two points well secured in our hearts. First, to be right as concerns the foundation. "Do I believe in the Son of God?"...The next important question is, "How stands the superstructure? Has the Holy Ghost wrought anything with a divine power in my soul?"
"...If you stand upon the foundation that God has laid in Zion, you are right; you are right if God the Spirit has wrought a living faith in your heart." -- J. C. Philpot

"This "good warfare" is carried on against three principal enemies—the flesh, the world, and the devil; and each of these enemies so closely allied to ourselves..." -- J. C. Philpot
