The Nature Of This Thing God Calls Sin

Genesis 4.7

(Excerpt)

When God constructed human language for the purpose of communicating with His creatures, He selected for us as a concept of what sin is at its root the Hebrew word for a crouching beast. Of course, the imagery is that of a human being being the helpless prey and of sin being the predator leaping upon its victim to wrestle it to the ground, choke the life out by strangulation (since that is how lions, tigers, leopards and such subdue prey they have surprised and overwhelmed), and then feed off of its dead carcass. Sadly, this predatory and fatal aspect of sin is what is most casually ignored or otherwise dismissed by most of sinís victims.

Quote of the Week

Lukewarmness goes masked under the name of discretion; licentious wantonness in the abuse of the privileges of the gospel, goes veiled with the profession of the liberty of the gospel; and while they profess, they must not be servants to men, they serve their own distempered affections.

Thomas Hooker (1586-1647)
