The Heart’s Capacity for Deceiving Itself

The Heart’s Capacity for Deceiving Itself

Proverbs 20:9; Isaiah 64:6; Jeremiah 17:9–10; Titus 3:3; 1 John 1:8

The human heart has so many recesses for vanity, so many lurking places for falsehood, is so shrouded by fraud and hypocrisy, that it often deceives itself.

John Calvin (1509 – 1564)
