Sin Quotes

Here we have compiled a collection of Biblical and Christian quotes on the topic of sin.

The great event which moved heaven, earth, and hell, for which the world had to be prepared and for which it had to wait four thousand years; the results of which will endure forever – the shedding of the blood of the Son of God on the cross – had an unspeakably great object: to bring about the destruction of sin itself and the overturning of its consequences.

Only he who is in agreement with this object, and who seeks to attain it, is capable of entering into the full fellowship of faith in the blessing of that blood. He who desires to be delivered only from the punishment of sin, or from sin as far as it makes him unfit for heaven, is certainly not in a condition to appropriate by a strong faith what the Word promises through the blood. But when the soul truly seeks, above everything else, to be cleansed from sin itself and to live in abiding fellowship with a holy God – it possesses the first requisite of a true faith in that blood.

Andrew Murray

I believe that God forgives sin fully and freely for Christ’s sake; but He allows certain penalties to remain. If a man has wasted years in riotous living, he can never hope to live them over again. If he has violated his conscience, the scars will remain through life. If he has soiled his reputation, the effect of it can never be washed away. If he shatters his body through indulgence and vice, he must suffer until death. As Talmage says, “The grace of God gives a new heart, but not a new body.”
“John,” said a father to his son, “I wish you would get me the hammer.”
“Yes, sir.”
“Now a nail and a piece of pine board.”
“Here they are, sir.”
“Will you drive the nail into the board?”
It was done.
“Please pull it out again.”
“That’s easy, sir.”
“Now, John,” and the father’s voice dropped to a lower key, “pull out the nail hole.”
Every wrong act leaves a scar. Even if the board be a living tree the scar remains.
D.L. Moody

What is an idol? It is anything that absorbs your heart and imagination more than God, anything you seek to give you what only God can give.

Timothy Keller

Preferring anything above Christ is the very essence of sin. It must be fought.

John Piper

The chains of sin are to light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken.

Tom Drout

One leak will sink a ship and one sin will destroy a sinner.

John Bunyan

Sin is anything in the creature which does not express, or which is contrary to the holy character of the Creator. the first sin in the Universe was an act of free will in which the creature deliberately, responsibly, and with adequate understanding of the issues, chose to corrupt the holy, godly character which God originally endowed His creation.

Zondervan Dictionary

Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay.

Not only does sin have consequences, but also each time we sin, we reinforce a pattern that becomes harder and harder to break. If we persist in sin with the thought that one day we will get right with God, we should remind ourselves that God may still be there to forgive and restore but we may not be.

Sin has a diminishing factor to it. It always gives it’s best in the beginning. It never gets better after that … it only gets worse.

Mark Aulson

Make a man’s will a prisoner and he is a captive indeed.

Sin will surely find out the sinner. Conscience is one of it’s officers. The consequences of sin lay hold of the sinner. No man can escape from himself.

Sin, which brings death to the soul, is yet sweet to the taste. The more we sin the more perverted becomes our taste, the more clamorous for further indulgence. But these stolen waters of sinful pleasure are not always sweet. Pleasant though they may be at the first, they will become bitter indeed. The power of sin lies in it’s pleasure.

Sin always finds it’s root in our own selfish desires and self-gratification.

Joe Campbell

This Bible will keep you away from sin , or sin will keep you away from the Bible.

Rev Jim Smith

There are seven sins in the world: 1.) wealth without work, 2.) pleasure without conscience, 3.) knowledge without character, 4.) commerce without morality, 5.) science without humanity, 6.) worship without sacrifice and 7.) politics without principle.

Mahandas Gandhi
