One dead fly

Thomas BrooksNo hypocrite is totally divorced from the love and liking of every known sin. There is still some secret lust, which as a sweet morsel he rolls under his tongue, and will not spit it out.

Principles For The Gathering Of Believers

76 - Chronological Bible Reading of Scriptures
