John Owen Explains how the Power of Indwelling sin can draw us away from God and the Inheritance of His Kingdom

March 1, 2016

"If a man, in the things of this world, had such a hope of a large inheritance, of a kingdom, as wherein he is satisfied that it will not fail him, but that in the issue he shall surely enjoy it, and lead a happy and a glorious life in the possession of it many days; if one should go to him and tell him, "It is true, the kingdom you look for is an ample and honourable dominion, full of all good things desirable, and you may attain it; but come, cast away all hopes and expectations of it, and come join with me in the service and slavery of such or such an opposing tyrant;" ---you will easily grant he must have some strange bewitching power with him, that should prevail more so, in the case we have in hand."
