The Human Heart

One of the websites that has helped me very much is They send out a free daily email with a quote, usually of a Puritan. Each quote is an excellent little gem of truth and well worth signing up for. I have collected a large number of these emails and thought I would promote them by posting one each week. Again sign up today at


The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked! Who really knows how bad it is?” Jeremiah 17:9
The human heart is full of hostility against God.

The human heart is the very nursery of sin.

The human heart is the storehouse where all the weapons of unrighteousness lie.

The human heart is a lesser Hell.

“For from within, out of a person’s heart–come  evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder,  adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, lustful  desires, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness.
All these vile things come from within; they  are what defile you.” Mark 7:21-23
