Puritan reads...

'The Mystery of Providence' by John Flavel ~ epub html SAMPLE Now my business here is not so much to deal with professed atheists who deny the existence of God and consequently deride all evidences brought from Scripture of the extraordinary events that fall out in favour of that people that are called His, but rather to convince those that professedly own all this, yet, never having tasted religion by experience, suspect, at least, that all these things which we call special providences to the saints, are but natural events or mere contingencies. Thus, while they profess to own a God and a Providence (which profession is but the effect of their education) they do in the meantime live like atheists, and both think and act as if there were no such things; and really, I fear this is the case with the greater part of the men of this generation. 'Complete John Bunyan' ~ epub html SAMPLE “Then I saw in my dream that the Interpreter took Christian by the hand and led him into a place where there was a fire burning against a wall. There was one standing by it who was always throwing water on it to put it out. Even so the fire burned higher and hotter.” “‘This fire is the work of grace that is done in the heart. The one who throws water on it to extinguish it is the devil. But you also see the reason the fire continues to burn higher and hotter.’ So he took him around to the back of the wall, where he saw a man with a bottle of oil in his hand. He was secretly and continuously throwing this oil into the fire.’”
