John Owen Reminds us that the root of sin is Temptation and we must take Great care to Stand Against it

December 22, 2015

"When they are overtaken with a sin they set themselves to repent of that sin, but do not consider the temptation that was the cause of it, to set themselves against that also, to take care that they enter no more into it. Hence are they quickly again entangled by it, though they have the greatest detestation of the sin itself that can be expressed. He that would indeed get the conquest over any sin must consider his temptations to it, and strike at that root; without deliverance from thence, he will not be healed.

     This is a folly that possesses many who have yet a quick and living sense of sin. They are sensible of their sins, not of their temptations, ---are displeased with the bitter fruit, but cherish the poisonous root."

 

John Owen, "Of Temptation: The Nature and Power of It, Etc.;". The Works of John Owen, Volume VI.  The Banner of Truth Trust: Carlisle, PA.  (1668) 2000.  p.118.
