This Evil Is Present With Me

This evil is present with me: my heart is like a highway, like a city without walls or gates.  Nothing so false, so frivolous, so absurd, so impossible, so horrid, but it can obtain access, and that at any time, or in any place: neither the study, the pulpit, or even the Lord’s Table, exempt me from their intrusion.

– John Newton
