a lenten confession
They have a zeal for religion; but it is accompanied with want of forebearance and universal righteousness. They deny prodigality, but with worldliness; they separate from the world but live wholly to themselves, taking no care to exercise loving-kindness in the earth; or they talk spiritually and life vainly; mention communion with God and are every way conformed to the world; boasting of forgiveness of sin, and never forgiving others.
John Owen. OF THE MORTIFICATION OF SIN IN BELIEVERS.
