No man shall see God with the sight of the eye (William Perkins)

Reformed Covenanter

Puritanboard Commissioner
By the sight of the eye no man can see God in his essence and substance, which is most spiritual, and so invisible, for eye seeth nothing but things corporal and visible: a man by his eye cannot see his own soul, and much less the substance of God.
