We have been listening to what the Bible says about sin and what to do about it, but today listen to what some of our predecessors in humanity have said about sin (not all of these were Christians):
"Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall." ~ William Shakespeare
"Sin is not hurtful because it is forbidden, but it is forbidden because it is hurtful" ~ Benjamin Franklin
"The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them; that's the essence of inhumanity." ~ George Bernard Shaw
"Pleasure is the bait of sin." ~ Plato
"A sin takes on a new and real terror when there seems a chance that it is going to be found out." ~ Mark Twain
And this important reminder from Martin Luther:
"Sin cannot tear you away from him (Christ), even though you commit adultery a hundred times a day and commit as many murders."
Isn't it interesting, convicting, and insightful to hear what others think about sin?
