Truth in the Particulars

“Many men are wise in generals, but very vain  in the reasonings or imaginations, as the apostle calls them, Romans 1:21. that is, in their practical inferences. They are good at speculation, but bunglers at application: but iy is truth in the particulars that, like a hot iron, pierces; and, oh! that you may find these to be such in your soul!”

– John Flavel, Impure Lust, p. 7-8 (emphasis in original)
