Who really knows how bad it is?
(J. C. Philpot, "Getting
and Losing" 1846)
"The human heart is most deceitful and
desperately wicked! Who really knows
how bad it is?" Jeremiah 17:9
Without a knowledge of the corruptions
and abounding evils of our deceitful and
desperately wicked heart . . .
there will be . . .
no self loathing,
no dread of falling,
no desire to be kept,
no knowledge of the super-aboundings
of grace, over the aboundings of sin.
