Only God Knows Who Is Godly
1 Samuel 16:7; Psalm 139:1–4; Proverbs 15:11; 1 Corinthians 8:3; 2 Timothy 2:19
The true saints have not such a spirit of discerning that they can certainly determine who are godly and who are not. For though they know experimentally what true religion is, in the internal exercises of it; yet these are what they can neither feel nor see in the heart of another.
Jonathan Edwards (1703 – 1758)
