As promised here is the next device that Satan uses to fool the saints and it’s remedies from Thomas Brooks work, “PRECIOUS REMEDIES AGAINST SATAN’S DEVICES”:

Device #3:
By the extenuating and lessening of sin.

1) sin which men account small brings God’s great wrath on men.

2) the giving way to a less sin makes way for the committing of a greater.

3) it is sad to stand with God for a trifle.

4) often there is most danger in the smallest sins.

5) the saints have chosen to suffer greatly rather than commit the least sin.

6) the soul can never stand under the guilt and weight of sin when God sets it home upon the soul.

7) there is more evil in the least sin than in the greatest affliction.
