The Egregiousness of Sin 罪的恶势

Updated: May 9, 2018

* Egregious is defined as outstandingly bad or shocking.

had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the

thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. –

Genesis 6:5

“Character is who you are when nobody else is watching.” What would

we do if we thought we wouldn’t get caught? I know a young girl who

loves to watch TV. Once, when she was instructed to learn her Chinese

spelling, she promptly announced after 10 minutes that she had finished

learning all the words and proceeded to watch TV for 90 minutes.

learn to tell lies?

Wesley’s view that sin was a disease meant that it was not a ‘thing’ that

we could just cut off.

9 Wesley wrote, “Now he truly desires to break

loose from sin and begins to struggle with it. But though he strive with

all his might, he cannot conquer; sin is mightier than he.”10 However,

sin’s egregiousnessa does not imply hopelessness, “we cannot try hard

enough, learn enough, worship enough, or work enough to heal

ourselves... the only option is transformation.”11

Reflection 反思

Think of your own experience. Have you ever felt helpless over sin in

your life? In what ways did God take the initiative to bring you to

acknowledge your helplessness?
