STOP AND THINK – The human heart set on sin is impervious to reason, never mind appeals to fairness. (Eric Metaxas, biographer, author, Christian apologist)
Whatever your definition of sin, Metaxas notes a common reaction when someone is confronted with his errors: defensiveness and resistance. No matter the arguments about right and wrong or the effects on others of one’s poor behavior, the offender seems impervious to criticism or logic. The result of constant misbehavior is the blinding of a sinner to truth.
Evildoers do not understand what is right, but those who seek the Lord understand it fully. (Proverbs 28:5)
