John Owen on Navigating the Extremes of Absolute Perfection and Total Apostasy in Christ
January 4, 2015
"To be wholly perfect, to be free from every sin, all failings, all infirmities, that is not provided for...To fall utterly and finally from God, that is absolutely provided against. Between these two extremes of absolute perfection and total apostasy lies the large field of believers' obedience and walking with God."
-John Owen, An Exposition of Psalm 130. The Banner of Truth Trust: Carlisle, PA. (1668) 2000. p.341.
