Quotes On Sin From Today's Message

Today's message is quote-heavy. I hope these help in your fight against sin.

  • A sinner is the greatest self-denier. For the love sin, he will deny himself a part in heaven. – Thomas Watson.
  • If hell were on one side and sin were on the other, I would rather leap into hell than willingly commit sin. – Anselm
  • However strong a castle may be, if a treacherous party resides inside, the castle cannot be kept safe from the enemy. – John Owen
  • If we do not abide in prayer, we will abide in temptation. – John Owen
  • I fear we do not sufficiently realize the extreme subtlety of our soul’s disease. We are too apt to forget that temptation to sin will rarely present itself to us in its true colors, saying, “I am your deadly enemy and I want to ruin you for ever in hell.” Oh, no! Sin comes to us, like Judas, with a kiss, forbidden fruit seemed good and desirable to Eve, yet it cast her out of Eden. The walking idly on his palace roof seemed harmless enough to David, yet it ended in adultery and murder. Sin rarely seems sin at its first beginnings. – J.C. Ryle.
  • One sin makes way for more. . . The more they sinned, the more fit they were to sin. – Thomas Watson
  • The forbidding fruit is sauced with bitter herbs. – Thomas Watson
  • The pleasure of sin is soon gone, but the sting remains. – St. Austin
  • Listen, I’m against sin. I’ll kick it as long as I’ve got a foot, I’ll fight it as long as I’ve got a fist, I’ll butt it as long as I’ve got a head, and I’ll bite it as long as I’ve got a tooth. And when I’m old, fistless, footless and toothless, I’ll gum it till I go home to glory and it goes home to perdition. – Billy Sunday
