Pike and Hayward’s Cases of Conscience – Case 11 Doubting Salvation.

T

The most settled and general part of my unbelief may appear by the following hints, viz. I cannot view Jesus Christ in that loveliness, excellency, and preeminence, as I find him set forth in the word of truth. I cannot find sufficient ability in my soul to believe in him, wholly and unfeignedly ; and how can I believe in him, without a right view of him ? Sometimes I can set him forth to others, in the words and light of Scripture, so that I believe many of the children of God have their very souls nourished and fed by what I say: and upon certain times I myself am much delighted in, and with the work ; but when I retire into myself, and consider the barrenness of my soul, my strangeness to, and alienation from God, Jesus Christ?

Solomon Stoddard – Way to Know Sincerity and Hypocrisy Cleared Up

One way of sin is exception enough against the man’s salvation. Though the sin that he lives in be but small: such persons will not be guilty of perjury. stealing, drunkenness, fornication; they look upon them to be heinous things, and they are afraid of them; but they do not much matter it, if they oppress a little in a bargain, if they commend a thing too much when they are about to sell it, if they break a promise, if they spend the Sabbath unprofitably, if they neglect secret prayer, if they talk rudely and reproach others; they think these are but small things, if they can keep clear of great transgressions, they hope that God will not insist upon small things. — But indeed all the commands of God are established by divine authority: a small shot may kill a man, as well as a cannon bullet: a small leak may sink a ship.

Jonathan Edwards – Preface to David Brainerd’s Diary

His example is attended with a great variety of circumstances tending to engage the attention of religious people, especially in these parts of the world. He was one of distinguished natural abilities; as all are sensible, who had acquaintance with him. As a minister of the gospel, he was called to unusual services in that work; and his ministry was attended with very remarkable and unusual events.

Thomas Boston – Fourfold State – The Corruption of the Will

The will, that commanding faculty, which at first was faithful and ruled with God, is now turned traitor, and rules with and for the devil. God planted it in man, “wholly a holy seed;” but now it is “turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine.” It was originally placed in due subordination to the will of God, as was shown before; but now it is wholly gone aside.

Richard Alleine – Heaven Opened to the Unconverted.

From  Alleine’s book, Heaven Opened…

Come then, sinner ; what sayest thou ? Dost thou 
consent? Dost thou accept? Or, as Laban to Re- 
bekah, Wilt thou go with this man ? Let me espouse 
thee to this one Husband ; only let me first tell thee, the matter is solemn, and thoii must be serious. It is for life, it is for eternity. Consider therefore, and let thy heart, lying prostrate before the Almighty, come in and make answer to these demands, which from him, and in his great and dreadful name, I make unto thee.

Charles Spurgeon – Story of Spurgeon’s Conversion

I cried to God with groanings—I say it without exaggeration—groanings that cannot be uttered! And oh, how I sought, in my poor dark way, to overcome first one sin and then another, and so to do better, in God’s strength, against the enemies that assailed me, and not, thank God, altogether without success, though still the battle had been lost unless He had come who is the Overcomer of sin and the Deliverer of His people, and had put the hosts to flight.
