from "A Commentary on St. Paul's Epistle to the Galatians"--
"Reason feareth not God, it loveth not God, it trusteth not in God, but proudly contemneth him. It is not moved either with his threatenings or his promises. It is not delighted with his words or works, but it murmureth against him, it is angry with him, judgeth and hateth him: to be short, 'it is an enemy to God' (Rom 8[:7]), not giving him his glory. This pestilent beast (reason I say) being once slain, all outward and gross sins should be nothing."
