The Sinfulness of Sin
Sin, The Plague of Plagues
We cannot understand the Christian gospel until we know what sin is. Yet modern secular counselors urge us both to ignore the term “sin” and what it implies about our rebellion against God and His law. Men do not understand the sinfulness of sin.
Sadly, the church has succumbed to embracing much of this worldly wisdom rather than remain faithfully reliant on the Word of God to help us understand the truth about sin. Only when we accept our sinfulness, on God’s terms, can we ever rejoice in His forgiveness.
“Works like Ralph Venning’s The Sinfulness of Sin have steered me into a greater understanding of God, his word, and indeed even my own heart. Few today would dare think so carefully and comprehensively about the Bible’s teaching on the stuff of sin. Fewer still would dare write it. Perhaps even fewer have sat to read Venning’s cogent study. But any who read this book will never think the same way about sin, evil, and God’s grace in Christ Jesus.” – David Garner
