Grace Gems is a vast treasury of writings and excerpts from Reformers,Puritans, and other great godly people from history. My wife and I are both on the mailing list and we receive precious spiritual food from them every day (Click here to sign up for Grace Gems). Yesterday's Grace Gem by Jeremy Taylor was a very sobering reminder of the ever present peril of sin and how it attacks by stealth - so much so that I am posting it here today:
"Lest any of you be hardened through the
deceitfulness of sin!" Hebrews 3:13
First sin startles him,
then it becomes pleasing,
Then the man is impenitent,
then resolves never to repent,
and then he is damned!
"For the wages of sin is death!" Romans 6:23
Is it ever ok to lie?
