"We are careful enough of wounding or maiming our Bodies, but we make bold to lash and wound our Souls daily; for every Sin we commit, being contrary to its Nature, is a real Stripe yea a mortal Wound to the soul, and we shall find it to be so, if our Consciences be once awakened to feel the Sting and Smart of it."
