An Arminian arguing with a Calvinist remarked, 'If I believed your doctrine, and were sure that I was a converted man, I would take my fill of sin.' 'How much sin,' replied the godly Calvinist, 'do you think it would take to fill a true Christian to his own satisfaction?' Here he hit the nail on the head. 'How can we that are dead to sin live any longer therein?' A truly converted man hates sin with all his heart, and even if he could sin without suffering for it, it would be misery enough to him to sin at all.
