“Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.” Colossians 3:5
“Let no man think to kill sin – with a few, easy, or gentle strokes!
“He who has once smitten a serpent, if he does not beat it until it is slain – may regret that he ever began the quarrel!
“Just so it is with the one who undertakes to deal with sin – and does not constantly pursue it to its death!”
