CQOD: 08/21/07 -- Gossip: silent on sin

Christian Quotation of the Day

August 21, 2007
    [Jesus:] Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices--mint, dill and cummin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law--justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.
    -- Matthew 23:23,24 (NIV)

    At the very moment when the pulpit has fallen strangely silent about sin, fiction can talk of little except evil, not indeed viewed as sin, but apparently as the invariable ways of a peculiarly repulsive insect, which it can’t help, poor thing; and there is no manner of use expecting anything from it, except the nastiness natural to it.
    ... A. J. Gossip (1873-1954), The Galilean Accent [1926]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the only cure for the sickness of our society.
