We preach the Law to drive you to Christ, We preach Judgements, to make you seek Mercy: We preach damnation, to bring you to salvation. But to preach Mercy and forgiveness, before men see their sins, or know their miseries by the preaching of the Law, is to preach the Gospel unprofitably. For, he that is ignorant of the Law, knoweth not what misery is in himself: nor what mercy is in God.

Arthur Dent, A sermon of repentance. A very godly and profitable Sermon, preached at Lee in Essex, by Arthur Dent, Minister of God’s word. And published at the request of sundry Godly and well disposed persons. 1581. the 7. of March (London: John Harison, 1582), unpaginated.
