Sense is No Good Judge

Thomas Boston, Works, 5:493-494:

Sense is no good judge of what is best or worst. Of all things death is the most terrible to sense; therefore in the day of death there is nothing but groaning, sighing, and mourning: whereas in the day of one’s birth, there is feasting and rejoicing. Yet to a good man the day of his death is better than the day of his birth. Such is the doctrine of faith, quite opposite to that of sense. They must be ill guided then that walk by sense.
