CQOD: 11/17/07 -- Kierkegaard: holding on to sin

Christian Quotation of the Day

November 17, 2007
Feast of Hugh, Carthusian Monk, Bishop of Lincoln, 1200
    But the wicked are like the tossing sea, which cannot rest, whose waves cast up mire and mud. "There is no peace," says my God, "for the wicked."
    -- Isaiah 57:20,21 (NIV)

    Frightful this is in a sense, but it is true, and every one who has merely some little knowledge of the human heart can verify it: there is nothing to which a man holds so desperately as to his sin.
    ... Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855), Three Discourses at the Communion on Fridays [1849]

Quiet time reflection:
    Help me, Lord, to let go of my sin.
