A Real Penitent Turns Out of the Road of Sin

A real penitent turns out of the road of sin. Every sin is abandoned: as Jehu would have all the priests of Baal slain (II Kings 10:24) – not one must escape – so a true convert seeks the destruction of every lust. He knows how dangerous it is to entertain any one sin. He that hides one rebel in his house is a traitor to the Crown, and he that indulges one sin is a traitorous hypocrite. “Doctrine of Repentance”  pg. 54
