PT Forsyth & Man’s Chief End

Echoing the preamble of the Westminster Confession, PT Forsyth offers his version of “man’s chief end”:

Man’s chief end is not to make the most of himself, but to glorify a holy God by the holiness which alone can satisfy holiness. And that is what sinful man can do only in the power of the atoning holiness of Christ. [Positive Preaching and the Modern Mind, 218]
