 Re: John Berridge

[i]"You God see me"

What honesty and sincerity are stamped upon them! Berridge knew himself. The Holy Spirit had taken him into the chambers of imagery, and shown him "The creeping things portrayed upon the walls round about." The veil of self-righteousness and self-complacency had been taken from off his heart, and he had seen light in God's light. This made him honest. No disguise, he knew, could shroud him from the eyes of Omniscience. "You God see me" was engraved on his heart. And to this we owe the transparency of his character, his freedom from deceit and hypocrisy.

It is falsehood and hypocrisy that want disguise. Truth needs no adventitious ornaments to set off its intrinsic beauty.

He knew what Pharisaism was from a long experience of it in his own heart; and he abhorred the resident.

"Self-condemned and abhorred,
How shall I approach the Lord."

"I drop my vile heart in the dust."[/i]

Ah this is incredibly, painfully, rich ... [i]truth in the inward parts[/i] !
