Samuel Bolton on Sin

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at 7:54 AM


"All other evils do not make a man the subject of God’s wrath and hatred. A man may have all other evils and yet be in the love of God. You may be poor and yet precious in God’s esteem. You may be under all kinds of miseries and yet dear in God’s thoughts. But sin is an evil that makes the soul the subject of God’s wrath and hatred. The absence of all other goods, the presence of all created evils will not make you hateful to God if sin is not there; so the presence of all other goods and the absence of all other evils will not render you lovely if sin is there."
Samuel Bolton

Daniel Cawdray on God's Wrath

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, October 9, 2012 at 8:00 AM


"As we do not cease to hate a young wolf although that he hath not yet worried any sheep, or a young serpent, notwithstanding that it hath not yet cast forth its venom, but do judge them worthy of death because of the perverse nature that is in them: so ought we to esteem that God hath no less occasion to condemn us, even from our mother's womb, because of our perversity and natural malice engendered within us. And though the Lord should damn us eternally, He should do us no wrong, but only that which our nature deserveth; for although the young infant hath not yet done any work which we may judge to be evil, since he hath not yet the understanding or the power to do it, yet it followeth not therefore but that the perversity which is natural in man hath already its root in him as one part of his paternal inheritance, the which cannot please God; for although it bringeth not forth its fruits, yet they do remain still there, as in their root, which will bring them forth in its time—as the venom is already in a serpent, although he bite not, and the nature of a wolf in a young wolf, how harmless soever he seemeth to be,…."
Daniel Cawdray
(1588–1664)
