Luther: hate sin

Sunday, October 30, 2022
    Commemoration of Martin Luther, Teacher, Reformer, 1546
An oracle is within my heart
    concerning the sinfulness of the wicked:
There is no fear of God
    before his eyes.
For in his own eyes he flatters himself
    too much to detect or hate his sin.
    —Psalm 36:1-2 (NIV)
    Always preach in such a way that if the people listening do not come to hate their sin, they will instead hate you.
    ... Martin Luther (1483-1546) (see the book)
    See also Ps. 36:1-2; 69:4; 97:10; Pr. 8:13; Amos 5:15; John 7:7; 15:18-20; Rom. 12:9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I confess that I do not hate my sin enough.
