Ellul: the break with God

Wednesday, June 20, 2012
    But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.
    —Isaiah 59:2 (NIV)
    The mistake of centuries of Christianity has been to regard sin as a moral fault. Biblically this is not the case. Sin is a break with God and all that this entails.
    ... Jacques Ellul (1912-1994), Anarchy and Christianity, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1991, p. 20 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, banish my sin and restore me to Your fellowship.
