Profession of religion

by

“… every grace hath its counterfeit, and that the highest profession may be, where true conversion is not …… How far it is possible a man may go in a profession of religion, and yet, after all, fall short of salvation; how far he may run, and yet not so run as to obtain.” This, I say, is sad, but not so sad as true; for our Lord Christ doth plainly attest it: “Strive to enter in at the strait gate; for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.”

– Matthew Mead
