Firmness of Perswasion no Proof that any Proposition is from GOD.
      §12. This cannot be otherwise, whilst firmness of Perswasion is
made the cause of Believing, and confidence of being in the Right,
is made an Argument of Truth; St. Paul himself believed he did
well, and that he had a call to it, when he persecuted the Christians,
whom he confidently thought in the Wrong: But yet it was he,
and not they, who were mistaken. Good Men are Men still, liable
to Mistakes, and are sometimes warmly engaged in Errors, which
they take for divine Truths, shining in their Minds with the
clearest Light.
Locke Hum IV, 19, §12, p. 703
