Excerpt from The Spiritual Mirror, or Looking-Glass: Exhibiting the Human Heart as Being Either the Temple of God, or Habitation of Devils, Exemplified by a Series of Ten Engravings; Intended to Aid in a Better Understanding of Man's Fallen Nature
HE that committeth sin is the servant of sin, and the wages of sin is death. But it is written, repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blot ted out, and such may claim the promise, viz: he will forgive us our sins, and'cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Behold What manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God! Therefore the world knoweth us not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God and it doth not yet appear. What we shall be but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And' every man that hath this hope in him, purifieth himself, even as he is pure. Whosoever committeth sin, transgres seth also the law for sin is the transgression of the law.
And we know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sm. Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not Little children, let no man deceive you he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righ teous. He that committeth sm 18 of the devil for the devil smneth from the beginning, for this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is borne of God doth not commit sin 3 for his seed remaineth in him and he cannot sin, because/he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil he that doeth not righteousness, is not of God. 1 John iii. 1-40.
