Abhor the Causes of Sin


     A man is not freed from the pleasure of the working of sin until he truly abhors the cause of sin with his whole heart. This is the fiercest struggle, the struggle that resists a man unto blood, wherein his free will is tested as to the singleness of his love for the virtues.
