"This may give us a little insight into the ever-to-be-adored providence of God, by these and the like ways in great variety obstructing the breaking forth of sin in the world. It is he who makes these dams, and shuts up those flood-gates of corrupted nature, that it shall not break forth in a deluge of filthy abominations, to overwhelm the creation with confusion and disorder. As it was of old, so it is at this day: "Every thought and imagination of the heart of man is evil, and that continually.""
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.267.
