Our Damning Thought Life

Blog pictures.007.jpeg
Thoughts fall from the mind like leaves from a tree when shaken by the wind in autumn. How awesome then, are God’s words, ‘the thoughts of men’s hearts are only evil continually’ (Gen. 6:5). What a hell of horror and confusion there must be, then, in the minds of men. To be delivered from this state must be the most desirable deliverance in all the world. Without this deliverance, neither life, nor peace, nor immortality, nor glory can ever be had.
— John Owen, 'Spiritual-Mindedness,' 33.
