Thomas Hooker – 1587 – 1646 The Poor Doubting Christian Drawn to Christ Chapter 1

The following narration is dedicated to my friend Karl who has found this book very helpful to him. The Lord sweetly calms the heart, and persuades it that his sins are pardonable, and that the good he wants may be supplied, this is a great support to the soul. Hope is always expectation of a good to come. Now when a poor sinner sees his sins, the number of them, the nature of them, the vileness of them, the cursedness of hissoul, that he can take no rest, he sees no rest in the creature, nor in himself. – from the book The Poor Doubting Christian Drawn to Christ chapter 1

Robert Bolton – 1572 – 1631 Heart Surgery

Bolton wrote, “Look back upon all your sins past that you ever did commit, all you have been guilty of ever since you were born, original or actual, known or unknown, of thought, word, and deed. They are written with an iron pen, and with the point of a diamond, never to be erased! They are all upon record, and now lie as so many sleeping lions, gathering strength and vigor until such time as the Lord shall awake the conscience; and then they will appear, and rend your soul in pieces!”HEART SURGERY
