The Authentic Experience of Christianity

"Men ...have no real acquaintance with Christianity, who imagine that the placing of the most intense affections of our souls on the person of Christ, the loving him with all our hearts because of his love, our being overcome thereby, until we are sick of love [i.e., 'love-sick'], the constant motions of our souls towards him with delight and adherence, are but fancies and imaginations."

-- John Owen Works I:166f.
