“I have thought a great deal, this past week, about those who excuse sin by saying, “I was born this way”. My mind returned to the fact that some people say sin is the difference between good and bad, but I think it goes so much deeper than that. Sin is not simply doing bad; it is acting contrary to the very godlike nature that is within is, and by so doing, damaging our spirits.
There is no sin that will not hurt us simply because we were born with the tendency to desire it.”
Amen, Sister Hogenson, Amen!
