"Is it not a little one?" or, "There is mercy provided; " or, "It shall be in due time relinquished and given over, " is its language in a deceived heart."
John Owen, "The Nature, Power, Deceit, and Prevalency of the Remainders of Indwelling Sin in Believers". The Works of John Owen, Volume VI. The Banner of Truth Trust: Carlisle, PA. (1668) 2000. p.246.
