Sin is not a matter of sickness but one of life and death...


Hobart Mowrer said the quote below prior to him ending his life by committing suicide. He seemed to know the basic truth and yet he still avoided the fullness of all truth and freedom that can only be found in Jesus Christ. This man was once the president of the American Psychological Association. The lies of modern secular philosophy, that sin does not exist and that there are only victims of sickness, has led many Christians and non-christians further away from the freedom from sin that can only be accomplished through the perfect and finished work of Christ our Saviour. "For several decades we psychologists looked upon the whole matter of sin and moral accountability as a great incubus and acclaimed our liberation from it as epoch making. But at length we have discovered that to be free in this sense, that is, to have the excuse of being sick rather than sinful, is to court the danger of also becoming lost… In becoming amoral, ethically neutral and free, we have cut the very roots of our being, lost our deepest sense of selfhood and identity, and with neurotics, themselves, we find ourselves asking: Who am I, what is my deepest destiny, what does living mean?” “Sin, the Lesser of Two Evils,” American Psychologist, 15 (1960): 301-304 The truth regarding sin: Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? [17] But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. [18] Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. [19] I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness. [20] For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. [21] What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. [22] But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. [23] For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:16-23
