Thomas Boston – The Smiling World’s Deadly Hug

10 Jun

1676-1732. A Scottish Church Leader. One of the twelve Marrow Men.

The smiling world is meeting and embracing some. It is casting into their lap plentifully, and still they have prospect of more. But O! take heed to the dangerous embraces, lest it hug you to death, as surely it will, if you do not shake yourselves loose of it, “For the turning away of the simple, shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.”

~Thomas Boston~
