    Sin quotes by:    

If sin is estrangement from God, this very estrangement is Death. It is a want of correspondence. If sin is selfishness, it is conducted at the expense of life. Its wages are Death--"he that loveth his life," said Christ, "shall lose it."

    Author: Henry Drummond
    Source: Natural Law, Death, p. 170.

The peculiar feature of Death by Suicide is that it is not only self-inflicted but sudden. And there are many sins which must either be dealt with suddenly or not at all.

    Author: Henry Drummond
    Source: Natural Law, Mortification, p. 183.

No one knows the one-hundredth part of the sin that clings to his soul.

    Author: John Calvin

Original sin may be defined as the hereditary corruption and depravity of our nature. This reaches every part of the soul, makes us abhorrent to God's wrath and produces in us what Scripture calls works of the flesh.

    Author: John Calvin

It is hardly credible of how great consequence before God the smallest things are; and what great inconveniences some times follow those which appear to be light faults. As a very little dust will disorder a clock, and the least sand will obscure our sight, so the least grain of sin which is upon the heart will hinder its right motion towards God.

    Author: John Wesley

If loving God with one's whole being is the greatest commandment, then not to do so must be the greatest sin--indeed, the root of all sin.

    Author: Dave Hunt

Our love for God and our appreciation of His love and forgiveness will be in proportion to the recognition of our sin and unworthiness.

    Author: Dave Hunt

Growth in holiness will lead a man to see more and more of his own sinfulness.

    Author: Tom Wells
    Source: Christian: Take Heart! 1987, p. 88.

If God rules only in those places or events where no sin is involved, God does not rule on this earth. If sin can thwart God, His sovereignty is a name and not a fact.

    Author: Tom Wells
