Note 1. - "The best obedience of mere men must leave him under condemnation; and the higher any man's confidence is, that he has kept all the commandments, or any of them, the more clearly does it appear that he wants understanding as to spiritual meaning of them; and that he is a stranger to repentance, to faith, to his own real character and heart, and his need of a gratuitous salvation." - Scott in Commentary on Luke 18.

Note 2. - "There is no evidence of genuine repentance, unless it works reformation. If he restores the pledge, give again that he had robbed, confess his sins, and love God and his fellow-men, the sinner may be sure that he has passed from death unto life." - Mrs. E. G. White in "Steps to Christ."

Note 3. - "Apart from Christ, there is no hope for the human race. Men have battled sin in their own strength for millenniums, but sin has come out victorious. There is no help for sin from any human source. There is help and hope only in God." - M. L. Andreason in "The Faith of Jesus and the Commandments of God."

Note 4. - "Said Luther: 'Learn to know Christ and Him crucified. Learn to sing a new song - to despair of your own works, and to cry unto Him, Lord Jesus, Thou are my righteousness, and I am Thy sin. Thou hast taken upon Thee what was mine, and given to me what was Thine; what Thou wast not Thou becamest, that I might become what I was not.'" - D'Aubigne's "History of the Reformation."

Note 5. - To put it a little more fully we may say, "The seven steps in conversion are (1) Recognition of sin; (2) Sorrow for sin; (3) Confession of sin; (4) Restoration of that which has been unjustly obtained; (5) Faith in God; (6) Public acknowledgement of changed relations; (7) Abstinence from sin." - M. L. Andreason in "The Faith of Jesus and the Commandments of God."
