Quote of the Day #6 - Paul Washer

Paul Washer speaking on the subject of sin:
Imagine this: Here stands God on the day of creation. He looks at stars that could swallow up a thousand of our suns. He looks at them, and He says, "All you stars! Move yourself to this place, and start in this order, and move in a circle, and move exactly as I tell you until I give you another word!". And they all obey Him. He says, "Planets, pick yourselves up and whirl! Make this formation at My command until I give you another word!".
He looks at mountains and He says, "Be lifted up!". And they obey Him. He tells valleys, "Be cast down!". And they obey Him. He looks at the sea and says, "You will come this far!". And the sea obeys. And then He looks at you and says, "Come," and you go, "No!".
Look at the horrid wretchedness of sin! The vulgarity, the prostitution of sin! It is a horrid thing, not something to be trifled with. As I said, it is a beast, and it is waiting at the door, and its desire is to have you. Anyone who practices sin practices outright open-clench-fisted rebellion against the Lord of glory.
~Paul Washer (A Sermon That Has Angered Many)
