"Let us set out on the street of love together, making for Him of whom it is said, "Seek His face always." (Tehillim/Psalms 105:4) - Augustine of Hippo

I've heard that when John Bunyan was in prison he argued with the prisoners over whether assurance that one is saved inspires piety or grants license. It seems to me that if it inspired piety it is true and if it inspires license it is false, since trust in and love for God (the basis of assurance) is incompatible with license (an attitude of, essentially, exploitation- the opposite of love).
