Quote of the Day #221 - William Gurnall

A quote from William Gurnall:
Have you ever looked at a grog and felt thankful God created you a man instead of such an ugly creature? How much more grateful should you be that He has changed you more from the hypocrite you once were by nature into an upright Christian? Lactantius asked, 'If a man would choose death rather than have the face and shape of a beast - though he might keep the soul of man - how much more miserable is it for the shape of a man to carry the heart of a beast?' The hypocrite is in the worst shape of all, for he carries a beastly heart in the disguise of a saint.
~William Gurnall (The Christian in Complete Armour Volume 2, Chapter 1, Part 2).

This quote was taken from the book The Christian in Complete Armour Volume 2 - A modernized abridgement of the Puritan Classic by William Gurnall, published by Banner Of Truth.
