Great Quote!

March 3, 2010

Profession [of Faith in Jesus] is often made a cloak to cover sin. Absalom palliated his treason with a religious vow (2 Samuel 15.7). The Pharisees made long prayer a cloak for oppression (Matt.23.14). This is sordid – to carry on wicked designs – under a mask of piety. The snow covers many a dunghill. A snowy white profession covers many a foul heart! The sins of professors are more odious. Thistles are bad in a field – but worse in a garden. The sins of the wicked anger God – but the sins of professing Christians grieve Him.

– Thomas Watson
