"If we were left to ourselves but for a moment–we would destroy ourselves in that moment! We can defile ourselves–but we cannot cleanse ourselves. The sheep can go astray alone–but can never return to the fold, without the assistance of the shepherd. “Hold me up–and I shall be safe!” (Psalm 119:117)"

— William Secker, The Consistent Christian, 1660
