Concerning our Love for Sin

Man loves his own ruin. The cup is so sweet that though he knows it will poison him, yet he must drink it. And the harlot is so fair, that though he understands that her ways lead down to hell, yet like a bullock he follows to the slaughter till the dart goes through his liver. Man is fascinated and bewitched by sin.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892)_Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit_ Vol. 13 [1867]

    This one is too, too true. So sinful is man’s delight in sin, that if preaching like this were not part and parcel of the gospel message, this truth wouldn’t even be given a moment’s consideration.

    Thanks for posting it, brother. I’m going to post this on Christian Research Network.
