TYNDALE AND BONDAGE OF THE WILL, THE WILL OF THE FIEND

“Our will is locked and knit faster under the will of the devil than could an hundred thousand chains bind a man unto a post.

 

“Because . . . [by] nature we are evil, therefore we both think and do evil, and are under vengeance under the law, convict to eternal damnation by the law, and are contrary to the will of God in all our will and in all things consent to the will of the fiend.”

 

-Tyndale, Selected Writings, p. 37, 39
