John Owen Suggests that Inauthentic Faith Lacks Perseverance, and is Overcome when Temptation Arrives

December 15, 2015

"Luke viii. 13, "They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy, and have no root, but for a while believe." Well! How long do they believe? They are affected with the preaching of the word, and believe thereon, make profession, bring forth some fruits; but until when do they abide? Says he, "In the time of temptation they fall away." When once they enter into temptation they are gone forever. Temptation withers all their profession, and slays their souls."
