“Faith is the proper foundation of holiness and good works… The faith of Christians is a “most holy faith”; no doctrine has such pure precepts, such high examples, such raised motives, such mysterious enforcement’s, such blessed rewards, and all to encourage holiness.
In the Word of God you have the copy of his holiness…an impure life will not suit with a holy faith; you dishonour God and disparage your religion when you walk as heathens. This holy faith is but “kept in pure conscience.” (I Tim. 3:9) Good company preserves and keeps up your warmth and vigour as a remedy against apostasy.
—Thomas Manton “The Epistle of Jude”
