Hidden Treasures

The Bible is much more than a book of religion.

Hypocrites

Jonathan Edwards,  a leading evangelist and Biblical New England scholar of the 18th century,  contrasts genuine saints with hypocrites. 

“Consider, for example, the magnificent comparison between the true saints and those merely puffed up by the experience of vigorous but fleeting emotions. Hypocrites are likened to meteors which flare up suddenly in a blaze of light trailing showers of many sparks, but soon falling back to earth, their light dissipated; all is over in a twinkling. The true saints are like the fixed stars; they shine by a light which is steady and sure, a light which continues to show itself over time  and through infinite space.”
