... And here by the way let me give a Caution, viz. That no man bewray so much folly as to argue, That because in mercy God may abate and remove his heavy Judgments, before many, or perhaps any of these sins I have mentioned are put away from amongst us; and because we may have our former health and plenty restored, whilst there is no such Reformation of disorders as I have exhorted to, that therefore our Sufferings were not intended to chastise us for those sins, nor to bring us to this Reformation. ...

Another relevant comment from the same source:

They to whom Sin was sweet, will hardly be brought to like well of those potions, which are administered on purpose to make it bitter.

Matthew Mead, Solomon's prescription for the removal of the pestilence, or, The discovery of the plague of our hearts, in order to the healing of that in our flesh (London, 1665), p. 4.
