Sin, A Denial of the Greatest Good

“Every sin is, in its own nature, a denial of God to be the chiefest good and happiness, and implies that it is no great matter to lose Him: it is a forsaking Him as the Fountain of Life, and a preferring a cracked and “empty cistern” as the chief happiness before Him (Jer.2:13)”.

-Stephen Charnock, Ibid, P.314. vol. 2
