Gospel Quotes - Infinite Debt

“Since we have offended an infinite God, we owe him an infinite debt. But as finite creatures, we are incapable of repaying that debt. It is a debt that man owes, but that only God can pay. In other words, we have a God-sized debt, but we are only man-sized. How can we pay? We need a God-sized man to pay. Jesus, the God-sized man, has paid the God sized-debt.” -- Anselm of Canterbury, Monk, Archbishop, Theologian, 11th century.
