Lukewarmness in religion is abominable

May 19, 2009

Jonathan Edwards in Distinguishing Marks of the Work of the Spirit of God:

Lukewarmness in religion is abominable, and zeal an excellent grace; yet above all other Christian virtues, it needs to be strictly watched and searched; for ’tis that with which corruption, and particularly pride and human passion, is exceeding apt to mix unobserved.*

*Distinguish Marks, in Yale-Works 4:243.
