Symington on Christ’s Pity for Believers

“The pity of Christians for themselves can never equal the pity with which they are regarded by their Saviour: for theirs is the pity of a corrupted nature, his of uncontaminated humanity; theirs the pity of mere human nature, his of human nature indissolubly linked with all the tender mercies of Deity.”

William Symington, On the Atonement and Intercession of Jesus Christ (Pittsburgh: United Presbyterian Board of Education, 1864), p. 287.

I’m excited to be teaching an online cohort on arguments for Christianity. We will dive deep into 6 topics, with a view to real conversations and the pressing questions of our culture. Lots of time for interaction. This will be fun! You’re invited to join us!
