John Owen Speaking to the Tragic Outcome, When Our Sinful Lusts Go Unmortified

November 8, 2015

 "It untunes and unframes the heart itself, by entangling its affections. It diverts the heart from the spiritual frame that is required for vigorous communion with God; it lays hold on the affections, rendering its object beloved and desirable, so expelling the love of the Father, 1 John ii. 15, iii. 17; so that the soul cannot say uprightly and truly to God, "Thou art my portion," having something else that it loves. Fear, desire, hope, which are the choice affections of the soul, that should be full of God, will be one way or other entangled with it."

 

John Owen, "Of the Mortification of Sin in Believers; ". The Works of John Owen, Volume VI.  The Banner of Truth Trust: Carlisle, PA.  (1668) 2000.  p.22.
