I see what a viper it is!
Spurgeon, "How God Condemned Sin" Romans 8:3
The Christian is at enmity against the
sin which caused the suffering of Christ.
"What, did sin make my beloved Redeemer suffer?
Then away with it! It must be a foul, vile thing, to
put such a blessed One as Him to death! I will not
tolerate it! Revenge! Bring out the gallows, and
let sin be hanged thereon! The dearest idol I have
known, bring out the hammer and the axe, and let
it be broken in pieces. The fondest transgression
I have ever nurtured in my bosom, I see what a
viper it is, and I shake it into the fire; away with it."
