Wise Words On the Nature of Indwelling Sin

If persons live long in sin, though they be converted at last, yet they still have the ill habits that they contracted while they lived in sin. Those sins were so riveted onto them that grace doesn’t perfectly root them out, and they will be a great disadvantage and hindrance.

– Jonathan Edwards (quoted in Fathers & Sons: Stand Fast In the Way of Truth by Douglas Bond, p.41).
