Peccatum est Deicidium

(Thomas Brooks, "Heaven on Earth" 1667)

"The deceitfulness of sin." Hebrews 3:13

Sin . . .
  has its original from a deceitful subtle serpent,
  is the ground of all the deceit in the world,
  is the great deceiver of souls.

Sin . . .
  debases the soul of man,
  defiles and pollutes the soul of man,
  renders the soul most unlike to God,
    who is the best and greatest;
  renders the soul most like to Satan,
    who is a very sea and sink of sin!

Sin robs the soul of . . .
  the image of God,
  the holiness of God,
  the beauty of God,
  the glory of God,
  the righteousness of God.

Sin is peccatum est Deicidium--a killing of God!

"But they kept shouting--Crucify Him! Crucify Him!"
    Luke 23:21
