John Owen on Revenge: The Greatest Degeneracy of Human Nature

March 30, 2015

 

"To be morose, implacable, inexorable, revengeful, is one of the greatest degeneracies of human nature...To remember injuries, to retain a sense of wrongs, to watch for opportunities of revenge, to hate and to be maliciously perverse, is to represent the image of the devil unto the world in its proper colours; he is the great enemy and self-avenger."

 

-John Owen, "An Exposition of Psalm 130".  The Works of John Owen, Volume VI.  The Banner of Truth Trust: Carlisle, PA.  (1668) 2000.  p.497.
