計算代價:你的罪(二)

作真基督徒的代價是甚麼?
他要付上的代價:他的罪。真基督徒必須願意放棄所有神眼中看為錯的習慣與行為。無論周遭的世界如何看待與評論,他都必須轉面而對抗罪惡,與它爭論,與它決裂,與它奮爭,將它釘在十字架上,並且竭力制服它。基督徒必須誠實與公平地來這樣做,絕不能與某些他所愛的特別的罪另立休戰協約。他必須將所有的罪都當成是致命的敵人,並恨惡任何錯誤的道路。不論小事或大事、公開的或隱密的,他必須徹底背棄所有的罪。讓我們將這記錄成為賬目中的第二條:作基督徒必須付上的代價是人的罪。

“It will cost a man his sins. He must be willing to give up every habit and practice which is wrong in God’s sight. He must set his face against it, quarrel with it, break off from it, fight with it, crucify it, and labor to keep it under, whatever the world around him may say or think. He must do this honestly and fairly. There must be no separate truce with any special sin which he loves. He must count all sins as his deadly enemies, and hate every false way. Whether little or great, whether open or secret, all his sins must be thoroughly renounced. Let us set down that item second in our account. To be a Christian it will cost a man his sins.”
