Jonathan Edwards Observes the Futility of Our Religious Affections if they Are Secondary to Our Idols

May 18, 2015

"It is evident that there are counterfeits of all kinds of gracious affections; as of love to God, and love to the brethren, as has been just now observed; so of godly sorrow for sin, as in Pharaoh, Saul, and Ahab, and the children of Israel in the wilderness, Exod. ix. 27, 1 Sam. xxiv. 16, 17, and xxvi. 21, 1 Kings xxi. 27, Numb. xiv. 39,40; and of the fear of God, as in the Samaritans, "who feared the Lord, and served their own gods" at the same time, 2 Kings xvii. 32, 33; and those enemies of God we read of Psal. lxvi. 3, who, "through the greatness of God's power, submit themselves to him," or, as it is in the Hebrew, "lie unto him," i.e., yield a counterfeit reverence and submission."
