Sin promises a low-key flirtation. Easy, uncommitted, no strings attached. It draws us into the “just this once” and the “one more time”, keeping us focused on the moment, not the consequences.
As Christians, we are fully capable of recognizing the false advertising. We know that sin is a deadly parasite, sucking out our spiritual life. Its whole purpose is to draw us away from the Source of goodness and to glut our soul with vanity.
Sin is out to kill us, and we know it. Then we do we keep holding on?
