CQOD: 03/04/06 -- Tillotson: sinful sorrow over sin

Christian Quotation of the Day

March 4, 2006
Commemoration of Felix, Bishop, Apostle to the East Angles, 647
    [Jesus:] Hear and understand: it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person.
    -- Matthew 15:10-11 (ESV)

    Sin is a base and ill-natured thing, and renders a man not so apt to be affected with the injuries he hath offered to God as with the mischief which is likely to fall upon himself.
    ... John Tillotson (1630-1694)

Quiet time reflection:
    Holy Spirit, guard my tongue from sin, for Jesus' sake.
