Sin is an Infinite Evil

“If sin is an infinite evil, if not to love the infinitley glorious God our Maker with all our hearts, so as from love to be perfectly obedient to His will in thought, word, and deed, is an infinite evil; then those who are wholly blind to the holy beauty of the divine nature, and consequently entirely destitute of true love and of true obedience, are, in the sight of God, infinitely to blame for every thought, word, and action. the plowing of the wicked is sin. The prayers of the wicked are sin.

– Joseph Bellamy, from his “Sin, the Law, and The Glory of the Gospel’, p.65
