More Flavel on Sinful Fear

Puritan John Flavel has this further so say about causes of sinful fear:
 "Another cause and fountain of sinful fear, is guilt upon the conscience.   A servant of sin cannot but first or last, be a slave of fear; and they that have done evil, cannot choose but expect evil."
Proverbs says "He who covers his sin will not prosper, but he who confesses his sin will find mercy."  I would add "which includes freedom from sinful fear."
