What He Said: John Owen

"When sin lets us alone we may let sin alone; but as sin is never less quiet than when it seems to be most quiet, and its waters are for the most part deep when they are still, so ought our contrivances against it be vigorous at all times and in all conditions, even where there is least suspicion."

Aaaaand...I will be printing that one out and sticking it somewhere I'll see it frequently. Good thoughts from Mr. Owen, indeed.

He's the man. I highly recommend that book, by the way.
