No Sin Startles Less--or Damns Surer!



"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life; and
 he that believeth not the Son shall not see life;
 but the wrath of God abideth on him." John
3:36

Unbelief is man's great sin, and condemnation is
his great misery. How dreadful a sin is the sin of
unbelief, which brings men under the condemnation
of the great God. No sin startles less
or damns
surer!
Unbelief is a sin which does not affright the
conscience as some other sins do; but it kills the soul
more certainly than any of those sins. Other sins could
not damn us were it not for unbelief, which fixes the
guilt of them all upon us. Unbelief is the sin of sins;
and when the Spirit comes to convince men of sin,
He begins with this as the capital sin.

 

(John Flavel "The Method of Grace")
