image From English theologian John Owen (1616-1683):

Let no man think to kill sin with few, easy, or gentle strokes. He who hath once smitten a serpent, if he follow not on his blow until it be slain, may repent that ever he began the quarrel; and so he who undertakes to deal with sin, and pursues it not constantly to the death.
