A Krauth Gem

Not all embraced in the ideal of Christ's work are actually saved, because the work is arrested in its tendency either negatively by lack of the means appointed for its application, or positively by the natural will of those who have the means, but resist their power. So, on the other hand, not all embraced in the ideal of sin's work are actually lost, because that work is arrested on God's side by the appointed means as its antidote, and on man's side by the divinely enlightened will of those who, having these means, do not resist their power. - C. P. Krauth, *Conservative Reformation* p. 414

What I wouldn't have given to have sat at this man's feet in a lecture room and also heard him preach in Church! In fact, does anyone know if any of his sermons are available?
