John Owen On the Hopelessness of Aiming to Mortify Sin Without Simultaneously Marveling at the Righteousness of Jesus Christ

November 17, 2015

"If such directions should prevail to change men's lives, as seldom they do, yet they never reach to the change of their hearts or conditions. They may make men self-justiciaries or hypocrites, not Christians. It grieves me oftimes to see poor souls, that have a zeal for God and a desire for eternal welfare, kept by such directors and directions under a hard, burdensome, outside worship and service of God, with many specious endeavors for mortification, in an utter ignorance of the righteousness of Christ, and unacquaintedness with his Spirit all their days. Persons and things of this kind I know too many. If ever God shine into their hearts, to give them the knowledge of his glory in the face of his Son Jesus Christ, they will see the folly of their present way."
