“Any theory of conversion that encourages a sinner to think himself born of God, on account of something that he has felt or done, or ‘made up his mind’ to do, while he is still an utter stranger to the ‘plague of his own heart,’ is clearly contrary to the whole current of the Bible and of Christian experience.”

–Ebenezer Porter, Letters on Revival, 1858, p. 69
