We are made partakers of the redemption purchased by Christ, by the effectual application of it to us by His Holy Spirit.
      - Unattributed Author, Westminster Catechism

Christ is redemption only as He actually redeems and delivers our nature from sin. If He is not the law and spring of a new spirit of life, He is nothing. "As many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God," as many, no more.
      - Horace Bushnell

O, if there be any kind of life most sad, and deepest in the scale of pity, it is the dry, cold impotence of one, who has honestly set to the work of his own self-redemption.
      - Horace Bushnell

As God carries on the work of converting the souls of fallen men through all ages, so He goes on to justify them, to blot out all their sins, and to accept them as righteous in His sight through the righteousness of Christ. He goes on to adopt and receive them from being the children of Satan to be His own children, to carry on the work of His grace which He has begun in them, to comfort them with the consolations of His Spirit, and to bestow upon them, when their bodies die, that eternal glory which is the fruit of Christ's purchase.
      - Jonathan Edwards

By Christ's purchasing redemption, two things are intended, His satisfaction and His merit. All is done by the price that Christ lays down, which does two things: it pays our debt, and so it satisfies; by its intrinsic value, and by the agreement between the Father and the Son it procures our title, and so it merits. The satisfaction of Christ is to free us from misery, and the merit of Christ is to purchase happiness for us.
      - Jonathan Edwards

Underneath all the arches of Scripture history, throughout the whole grand temple of the Scriptures, these two voices ever echo, man is ruined, man is redeemed.
      - Cyrus David Foss

Look, therefore, which way we will, whether at the direct Scriptural statements of death as the penalty of sin, or at the agony of the cross as a means of rescue, or at the joy of the angels of God over a rescue; we see from either that it must be a work of infinite and eternal consequence--the work of redemption.
      - Herrick Johnson

Salvation by the cross.
  [Lat., In cruce salus.]
      - Thomas a Kempis, De Imitatione Christi
         (bk. II, 2), adapted from "A cruce salus"

Say, heavenly pow'rs, where shall we find such love?
  Which of ye will be mortal to redeem
    Man's mortal crime, and just th' unjust to save.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. III, l. 213)

And now without redemption all mankind
  Must have been lost, adjudged to death and hell
    By doom severe.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. III, l. 222)

The story of the redemption will not stand examination. That man should redeem himself from the sin of eating an apple by committing a murder on Jesus Christ, is the strangest system of religion ever set up.
      - Thomas Paine

Condemned into everlasting redemption for this.
      - William Shakespeare

Why, all the souls that are were forfeit once;
  And He that might the vantage best have took
    Found out the remedy.
      - William Shakespeare

Alas, ala:
  Why, all the souls that were were forfeit once,
    And He that might the vantage best have took,
      Found out the remedy.
      - William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure
         (Isabella at II, ii)

O villain! thou wilt be condemned into everlasting redemption for this.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing
         (Dogberry at IV, ii)

Is it not an amazing thing, that men shall attempt to investigate the mystery of the redemption, when, at the same time that it is propounded to us as an article of faith solely, we are told that "the very angels have desired to pry into it in vain"?
      - Laurence Sterne

Upon the present theological computation, ten souls must be lost for one that is saved. At which rate of reckoning, heaven can raise but its cohorts while hell commands its legions. From which sad account it would appear, that, though our Saviour had conquered death by the resurrection, he had not yet been able to overcome sin by the redemption.
      - Laurence Sterne

Welcome the hour that may put me where a man cannot take a dollar in exchange for a soul!
      - John Weiss
