R. C. Sproul (1939 – )

by Stalking John Calvin


“Sin is cosmic treason. Every sin, no matter how seemingly insignificant, is an act of treason against the cosmic King. When God’s character is made clear to us and we are able to measure our actions not in relative terms with respect to other humans but in absolute terms with respect to God, His character, and His law, then we begin to be awakened to the egregious character of our rebellion. Not until we take God seriously will we ever take sin seriously. But if we acknowledge the righteous character of God, then we, like the saints of old, will cover our mouths with our hands and repent in dust and ashes before Him.”
