The Essence of Sin

From The Victory of the Cross by Brooke Foss Westcott (New York, NY: Macmillan, 1888), page 23:

“The essence of sin is
selfishness in respect of men, and
self-assertion in respect of God,
the unloving claim of independence,
the arrogant isolation of our interests.”

One thought on “The Essence of Sin

  1. I went to hear Jerry Bridges speak at a weekend retreat. He is a wonderful speaker. The comments were closed about the book he spoke on. After hearing his three questions to ask yourself before you speak our home is a lot quieter. I find most of my comments about others are not necessary. Doylene
