Here a Sin… there a Sin… everywhere a sin, sin


David Brooks, writer for the New York Times, states, “Sometime over the past generation we became less likely to object to something because it is immoral, and more likely to object to something because it is unhealthy or unsafe. Smoking is now considered a worse evil than six of the Ten Commandments… and the word sinful is now most commonly associated with chocolate.”

    What an amazing Saviour!
