"This renewing of us by the Holy Ghost, as it is called, is one great way of mortification: he causes us to grow, thrive, flourish and abound in those graces which are contrary, opposite, and destructive to all the fruits of the flesh, and to the quiet or thriving of indwelling sin."
The Mortification of Sin is an incisive treatise on a topic much neglected in the church. Written in the 17th century by the English Puritan, John Owen, this work has been an unfailing aid for believers for several centuries as a corrective against the notion of "harmless sin." Owen refutes this completely with his famous quote: "Be killing sin, or it will be killing you." Though Owen's style can be dense, reading this treatise one senses his acute sensitivity for doctrine is precisely the remedy for true Christian living.
