Bold, unblushing audacity!

(Horatius Bonar, "Divine Love and Human Rejection of It")

"I listen to their conversations, and what do I hear? Is anyone sorry for sin? Does anyone say, 'What a terrible thing I have done'? No! All are running down the path of sin as swiftly as a horse rushing into battle!" Jeremiah 8:6

Man is blind, madly blind, both to his danger and to his sin. Furiously he plunges on in evil,
  from sin to sin,
  from lust to lust,
  defying God,
  braving His anger,
  ridiculing His threats,
  scoffing at His judgments,
  rushing against His sword,
  mocking at His hell.

How much recklessness there is among us! Recklessness in . . .
  sin,
  crime,
  self indulgence,
  pleasure,
  lust.

Utter defiance of God!

Bold, unblushing audacity, which nothing will daunt; which mocks at . . .
  judgments,
  sorrows,
  trials,
  sermons,
  and plunges on in evil,
  treasuring up wrath against the day of wrath!
