A Few, Easy, or Gentle Strokes

“Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.” Colossians 3:5

“Let no man think to kill sin – with a few, easy, or gentle strokes!

“He who has once smitten a serpent, if he does not beat it until it is slain – may regret that he ever began the quarrel!

“Just so it is with the one who undertakes to deal with sin – and does not constantly pursue it to its death!”

~ John Owen
