Chapter 5 “WHAT MORTIFICATION IS NOT” Continued 

2.Not to Conceal a Sin

I think I do not need to say it is not the dissimulation(40) of a sin. When a man on some out-ward respects forsakes the practice of any sin, men perhaps may look on him as a changed man. But God knows that to his former iniquity he has added cursed hypocrisy and is got in a more sure path to hell than he was in before. He has got another heart than he had that is more cunning, not a new heart that is more holy.

(40) dissimulation – deceitful concealment.
