“We should beware of treating sin as a light thing. Terrible is its power over the wrong-doer.
His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be held with the cords of his sins.” –
“Education,” Page 291.

“Sin is not the rough path to good, but its frightful overthrow; not the elevation but degradation

of man.”

“The Biblical conception of sin may be fairly summed up in the words of the Westminster
Confession: ‘Sin is any want of conformity unto or transgression of the law of God.”
The horror of sin is that it wrenched the, race from God. It dashed God from his throne and
placed self thereupon. It reversed the relationship of man and God. Its blight and its passion have
alienated mankind, enslaved it, condemned it, doomed it to death, exposed it to wrath. The sacrifice of
the cross is the explanation of the enormity of sin, and the measure of the love of the redeeming Trinity.”
