Why Sin Hurts Us So Badly

This is an image file scanned by a Microtek scanne“Clearly, what we do in private affects what we accomplish in public. . . . Private sin enslaves us to sin. . . . Private sin leads to public shame. . . . Sin always leads to more sin”–Jim Denison.

“Everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin”–John 8:34.

“My worth to God in public is what I am in private. . . . The penalty of sin is confirmation in sin. It is not only God who punishes for sin; sin confirms itself in the sinner and gives back full pay. No struggling nor praying will enable you to stop doing some things, and the penalty of sin is that gradually you get used to it and do not know that it is sin. No power save the incoming of the Holy Ghost can alter the inherent consequences of sin”–Oswald Chambers.

“Desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is full grown brings forth death”–James 1:15.

“Every time you make a choice you are turning the central part of you, the part of you that chooses, into something a little different from what it was before. And taking your life as a whole, with all your innumerable choices, all your life long you are slowly turning this central thing either into a heavenly creature or into a hellish creature: either into a creature that is in harmony with God, and with other creatures, and with itself, or else into one that is in a state of war and hatred with God, and with its fellow-creatures, and with itself”–C.S. Lewis.
