Christ did not die for any upon condition, if they do believe; but He died for all God’s elect, that they should believe.
— John Owen
If He hides the sin, or lesseneth it, He is faulty; if He leaves it still upon us, we die. He must then take our iniquity to Himself, make it His own, and so deliver us; for thus having taken the sin upon Himself, as lawfully He may, and lovingly He doth, it followeth that we live if He lives; and who can desire more?
— John Bunyan
