    Sin quotes by:    

No sin is so great but the satisfaction of Christ and His mercies are greater; it is beyond comparison. Fathers and mothers in tenderest affections are but beams and trains to lead us upwards to the infinite mercy of God in Christ.

    Author: Richard Sibbes

Only by seeing our sin do we come to see the need for and wonder of grace. But exposing sin is not the same thing as unveiling and applying grace. We must be familiar with and exponents of its multifaceted power, and know how to apply it to a variety of spiritual conditions. Truth to tell, exposing sin is easier than applying grace; for, alas, we are more intimate with the former than we sometimes are with the latter. Therein lies our weakness.

    Author: Sinclair B. Ferguson

Looking at the wound of sin will never save anyone. What you must do is look at the remedy.

    Author: D.L. Moody

Prayer will make a man cease from sin, or sin will entice a man to cease from prayer.

    Author: John Bunyan
    Source: A Puritan Golden Treasury

Sin is the dare of God's justice, the rape of His mercy, the jeer of His patience, the slight of His power, and the contempt of His love.

    Author: John Bunyan
    Source: A Puritan Golden Treasury

And indeed, there is no little sin, because there is no little God to sin against. In general, what to (humans) seems a small offense, to Him who knows the heart may appear a heinous crime.

    Author: John Wesley
    Source: Wesley's Notes on the Bible, 1 Sam. 13:14.

Give me 100 men who hate nothing but sin and love God with all their hearts and I will shake the world for Christ!

    Author: John Wesley

Sin is not weakness, it is a disease; it is red-handed rebellion against God and the magnitude of that rebellion is expressed by Calvary's cross.

    Author: Oswald Chambers

Sense of sin may be often great, and more felt than grace; yet not be more than grace. A man feels the ache of his finger more sensibly than the health of his whole body; yet he knows that the ache of a finger is nothing so much as the health of the whole body.

    Author: Thomas Adams
    Source: A Puritan Golden Treasury

The only thing of our very own which we contribute to our salvation is the sin which makes it necessary.

    Author: William Temple

For the Christian church (even in its recently popular seeker services) to ignore, euphemize, or otherwise mute the lethal reality of sin is to cut the nerve of the gospel. For the sober truth is that without full disclosure on sin, the gospel of grace becomes impertinent, unnecessary, and finally uninteresting.

    Author: Cornelius Plantinga

The solution to sin is not to impose an ever-stricter code of behaviour. It is to know God.
