I immediately went and talked to him, as well as I could, on the evil of his conduct. His answer was, he could not keep himself ; and that though I bore so hard on him, I was not my own keeper. At this I felt indignant, considering it as a base excuse. I therefore told him that he could keep himself from such sins as these, and that his way of talking was merely to excuse what was inexcusable.
He, however, was offended, and told me that I was young and did not know the deceitfulness of my own heart. Well, I went and told my pastor, who highly commended me, and said, we certainly could keep ourselves from open sins. We had not power, he observed, to do things spiritually good; but as to outward acts, we had power to obey the will of God and to disobey it. As for Fuller, the more he thought the more puzzled he became. He [ Fuller ] writes,. If we were like stocks and stones, or literally dead, like men in a burying-ground, we could with no more propriety than they be commanded to perform any duty; if we were mere machines, there could be no sin chargeable upon us … I prayed much, and labored hard to solve this difficulty.

During a ministry career spanning over six decades, and through his prolific written output, Packer has distinguished himself as one of the leading theologians and church historians of our time.
His book Knowing God has become a modern classic, and he has done much to stimulate wider interest in the great works of Puritan spirituality - a great passion of his.
