Ellul: the break with God

Monday, June 20, 2022
    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)
    See also Isa. 59:2; Deut. 7:26; Ps. 51:2; Luke 12:2-3; Rom. 8:6-7; Heb.12:14
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, banish my sin and restore me to Your fellowship.
