I came across this piece, but I don't know the context for it.
Sometimes the mind grows weak also. It can grow infirmed and is not as full as it was in its better days. But the text above from 'The Life of Mr. Perkins' puts things in a fuller light.God’s people sometimes lack assurance of faith when they will be exchanging time for eternity because they feel their sins are too great nevertheless they are kept by God who always finishes the works of His own hands.
I see that @Reformed Bookworm approve$ of this me$$age. The fact that he stocks William Perkin$ has nothing to do with it.
Surely I have no bias to this message. I almost forgot to mention that volume eight of Perkins' collected works is coming soon from Reformation Heritage Books.
