“By what means Satan first drew mankind from the obedience of God, the Scripture doth witness. Namely, by pouring into their hearts that poison — that God did not love them; and by affirming that by transgression of God’s commandments they might attain to felicity and joy; so that he caused them to seek life where God had pronounced death to be.”

John Knox, in Writings of the Rev. John Knox (Philadelphia, 1842), page 308.
