God’s Hatred of Sin

“The death of Christ, apprehended by faith, presents the strongest motive to holiness – by setting forth in the most vivid and striking manner…the evil nature of sin; the holiness and justice of God; His determination to punish transgression; the fearfulness of falling into the hands of the living God.  Not all the judgments God ever inflicted – nor all the threatenings He ever denounced, give such an impressive warning against sin, and admonition to righteousness – as the death of Christ.  The torments of the bottomless pit are not so dreadful a demonstration of God’s hatred of sin, as the agonies of the cross!

-J.A.James, “The Practical Believer Delineated”
