Quotes About Sin

Quotes about sin from throughout Christian History.

Clement of Alexandria, c. A.D. 190

For the wounds of the sinner are the rents of the garment of the flesh, the holes made by lusts, through which the shame of the soul within is seen; namely sin. Because of this it will not be easy to save the garment that has been torn away all round, that has rotted away in many lusts, and has been rent asunder from salvation. (The Instructor II:2)

George MacDonald, c. 1875

Man finds it hard to get what he wants, because he does not want the best; God finds it hard to give, because he would give the best, and man will not take it.
