"It is indeed no marvel that poor creatures who forsake their own mercies, and run away from the pasture and fold of Christ in his ordinances, are rent and torn with diverse lusts, and do pine away with hunger and famine; but to see men living under and enjoying all the means of spiritual thriving, yet to decay, not to be fat and flourishing, but rather daily to pine and wither, this argues some secret powerful distemper, whose poisonous and noxious qualities hinder the virtue and efficacy of the means they enjoy. This is indwelling sin."
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.286.
