God Must be Just in His Pardon of Sins

“For over a century the Edinburgh Review has had on its cover the Latin epigram, ‘Judex damnatur cum nocens absolvitur’—‘The judge is condemned when the guilty is freed.’ If God is to forgive man, He must forgive him like a God. If He is to justify, He must still remain just. God has devised means. None but God could have provided such a plan. By giving His only Begotten Son to die for the sins of the world, God judges sin and yet forgives the sinner. He remains just, and yet the justifier of them that believe in Jesus. Christ, by the blood of His Cross, has made peace.”
