Thomas Watson's choice quotes on SIN

(Thomas Watson)

There is more evil in a drop of sin — than in a sea of affliction!

  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

The natural heart is . . .
  the nursery of sin,
  the magazine where all the weapons of wickedness lie,
  full of antipathy against God,
  a lesser Hell!

  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

Morality is but nature refined — old Adam put in a better dress. The garnishing of man with moral excellencies, is but adorning a dead man with a garland of flowers!

  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

Civility is not grace, although it is a good wall against which to plant the vine of grace.

  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

If a wicked man seems to have peace at death, it is not from the knowledge of his happiness — but from the ignorance of his danger!

  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

God's long forbearance in not punishing of sin, is not forgiveness!
The longer God delays the blow — the heavier it falls when He strikes!

  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

The sinner may live in a calm — but he will die in a storm of wrath!

  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

Sin makes the soul red with guilt — and black with filth!


  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

The love of sin makes sin taste sweet — this sweetness beguiles the heart, and ruins the soul. It is worse to love sin, than to commit it. The love of sin . . .
  hardens the heart,
  keeps the devil in possession, and
  freezes the soul in impenitence.

  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

View sin in the looking-glass of Christ's sufferings.
The least sin cost His blood!


  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

Read the greatness of your sin in the greatness of the Savior's sufferings, and in the depth of His wounds!
