The Hidden Wellspring of Disputes

“When Saul had made great breaches between God and his soul and in his own conscience, then he grew to be of a very froward spirit towards every man. Before his apostasy he was a of very meek and quiet spirit, but this soured his spirit and made it grow harsh, rugged, and cruel. This is the cause of the frowardness of many men and women in their families and with their neighbors: there are secret breaches between God and their own consciences” (Burroughs, Irenicum, p. 381).
