Deceit

"Hiding of ends and designs is the principal property of deceit"
-John Owen

One reason sin is tempting is because we don't see the end result of it. If we could clearly see that the "wages of sin is death," we wouldn't be so deceived by it. So, when John Owen says that the "Hiding of ends...is the principal property of deceit," he's reminding us of how short-sighted we often are when it comes to sin.

Ooooh, I like this! I've copied it and sent it to myself in an email so I can print it off and use it in our Wednesday's ladies Bible Study. One of our discussion topics is about the deceit of the heart.

Thanks!

That is such a helpful section in Owen! Thanks for the reminder. Are you doing the review of Communion by Owen on your blog for CrossWay ala Justin Taylor's blog - you can get a free copy of the book!

Blessings man!

Yeah, I thought about it...but I don't know if I can read/print out a pdf book for review...even it means getting a free one. Are you?
Also, I haven't forgotten about chapel...I just haven't gotten to a good place to plan that far ahead yet.
