"They that never felt the real influences of religion upon their own souls, will not believe that others do feel them. Serious piety is become the ludicrous subject with which the wanton wits of this atheistical world sport themselves." (p. 583, volume 5, Works of John Flavel)
Puritan Wisdom is a blog companion to my primary blog, In Principio Deus, in which I select quotes simply for the reading from Puritan and Reformed sources. These are gleanings from their wisdom - God-given wisdom - meant to encourage, exhort, convict, comfort and edify His church. My prayer is that the intended fruit is indeed realized, by God's grace.
