John Bunyan

"False religion may cause persons to be loud and earnest in prayer."

"If the actings of grace do much decay in the Christian, and he falls into a lifeless frame, he loses his assurance: but this kind of confidence of hypocrites will not be shaken by sin: they (at least some of them) will maintain their boldness in hope, in the most corrupt frames and wicked ways: which is a sure evidence of their delusion."

Jonathan Edwards

"Assurance is not so much to be gained by self-examination as by action."

Jonathan Edwards

"A true love to God must begin with a delight in His holiness, and not with a delight in any other attribute."

Jonathan Edwards
