"Christ entered into it, but was not in the least foiled by it. But, ---It is, as the apostle expresseth it, 1 Tim vi. 9, "to fall into temptation," as a man falls into a pit or deep place where are gins or snares, wherewith he is entangled; the man is not presently killed and destroyed, but he is entangled and detained, ---he knows not how to get free or be at liberty."
