Tillotson: disinclined

Tuesday, July 21, 2020
    This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.
    —1 John 4:2-3 (NIV)
    The true ground of most men’s prejudice against the Christian doctrine is, because they have no mind to obey it.
    ... John Tillotson (1630-1694), Works of Dr. John Tillotson, v. VI, London: J. F. Dove, for R. Priestley, 1820, Sermon CXVIII, p. 47 (see the book)
    See also 1 John 4:2-3; Matt. 11:6 1 Cor. 2:14
Quiet time reflection:
    Praise God for the discernment He grants!
