The following quote is by John Leland. Many Americans know him as a pivotal figure in the fight for Religious Liberty. Few realize that he was a Primitive Baptist preacher. He was a predestinarian holding firmly, as the supplied quote testifies, to salvation by the Sovereign Grace of God.

That God is good, and that men are rebellious - that salvation is of the Lord, and damnation is of ourselves, are truths revealed as plain as a sunbeam. - Elder John Leland
