John Owen Temptation Nature
“Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.” — Rev 3:10.
John Owen (1616 – 24 August 1683) was an English Nonconformist church leader, theologian, and academic administrator at the University of Oxford. Brought up a Puritan, he became a non-conformist to the Church of England (Anglican). He was briefly a member of parliament for the University, sitting in the First Protectorate Parliament of 1654 to 1655.
He became pastor at Coggeshall in Essex. His adoption of Congregational principles did not affect his theological position, and in 1647 he again argued against Arminianism in The Death of Death in the Death of Christ, which drew him into long debate with Richard Baxter.
