Jonathan Edwards on True and False Affections

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Friday, May 19, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“Just as all Christian affections flow from true divine love, so in the same way, other false affections flow naturally from a counterfeit love. In both cases, love is the fountain, and the other affections are the streams. The various faculties, principles, and affections of human nature are, as it were, many channels from one fountain. If there is sweet water in the fountain, then sweet water will flow from there out into those various channels; but if the water in the fountain is poisonous, then poisonous streams will also flow out into all those channels.”

Jonathan Edwards
