    Wayne Tempus faciendi, Domine.

    This from the evening's reading in Sibbes, from his sermon, "The Saint's Safety in Evil Times" [Works, i.322]:

    Liberalism is a pick and choose religion. Modernists make themselves gods, picking and choosing what they will believe out of God's Word, as if they were superior to the LORD Himself. They single out easy things that do not oppose their lusts, and especially those things which promote their reputation. They will even do these things to excess, for theirs is a religion of works.

    No, and in fact I started to add, "Lord, deliver me from this same spirit and practice, from this same temptation."
