I now think I am bound never to preach a sermon without preaching to sinners. I do think that a minister who can preach a sermon without addressing sinners does not know how to preach. - Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Never had roast preacher at our house. Might should have some time- I don't know, but we didn't. Because my daddy used to always say to us, "Boys, you won't hear me condemning and cussing the preacher. 'Cause one of these days you boys gonna need God's man and I want you to be able to listen to him. - David Bouler, 5/17/1992

The sovereign will of God and the sovereign grace of God do not destroy the free will of individuals. - Oliver B. Greene

Is all sin the same or are some sins worse than others? All sin is the same in the sense that every sin is sin regardless of motivation or how it may affect others. What we might call a "little" sin is sin just as a "big" sin is sin. However,the Bible speaks of differences among sins. Our Lord said. "he who delivered Me to you has the greater sin" (John 19:11). The Lord was speaking of Caiaphas who delivered Jesus to Pilate. Caiaphas's sin was greater than Pilate's sin. Both sinned terribly but one committed a greater sin.
As recorded in Matthew 7:3 the Lord differentiated between log and speck sins. Both need to be removed, but both are sin, though different. We should not think it is OK to overlook speck sins just because they are specks. Clear-eyed people who have cast out beams from their own eyes should help cast out speck sins in others. - Charles Ryrie
