The Nature of Sin

Sin is “that abominable thing which God hates:” he cannot look upon it, or on those who commit it, without the utmost abhorrence. It is, whether we will believe it or not, “exceeding sinful.” Now we are told by the prophet, that many will “call evil good, and good evil; and will put darkness for light, and light for darkness; bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.” But if the whole universe should do this, would they alter the essential qualities of these things? Would darkness cease to be darkness, and serve all the purposes of light? or would bitter change its properties to sweetness? So, whatever construction men may put upon sin, and however they may palliate its enormity, it will ever remain immutably the same; a defiling, debasing, damning evil; more to be dreaded than death itself. We may call it innocent; but it will “bite like a serpent, and sting like an adder.” We may roll it as a sweet morsel “under our tongue; but it will be the gall of asps within us.”

Very good blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for
a paid option? There are so many options out there that
I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Appreciate it! Nye Bastos Fotballdrakt For Lazio

Hi there! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
My website looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone.

I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to
fix this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
Thank you!

Superb website you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any forums that cover the same
topics discussed in this article? I’d really love to be a
part of group where I can get suggestions from other knowledgeable
people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let
me know. Bless you!

Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest
writing a blog post or vice-versa? My blog covers a lot of
the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit
from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free
to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!
Excellent blog by the way!

When someone writes an paragraph he/she retains the plan of a user in his/her mind that how a user can understand it.
So that’s why this piece of writing is amazing. Thanks!
