…he debated with fellow religious prisoners whether the assurance of God’s love promoted holiness or license.  Fellow prisoners challenged Bunyan saying, ‘You must not keep assuring people of God’s grace because they will do whatever they want.’  Bunyan responded, ‘That is not true for God’s people.  If you keep assuring God’s people of his grace, then they will do whatever he wants.’  – From Christ-Centered Preaching by Brian Chapell
