Sin Is A Turning From God to Some Other Seeming Good

“All sin is a turning of the soul from God to some other seeming good, but this proceeds from a former turning of the soul from God by distrust.  …whereby looking to God in Christ through the promises, we take off our souls from all other supports, and lay them upon God for deliverance and upholding in all ill, present or future, felt or feared, and the obtaining of all good, which God sees expedient for us.”  –Richard Sibbes, Works of –Vol. 1 (Banner of Truth) p. 222, 223

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
