Keep Out

With the leaves of decay all around us
it may be tempting to enter
that cabin of want and desire.

“Man-like is it to fall into sin,
Fiend-like is it to dwell therein,
Christ-like is it for sin to grieve,
God-like is it all sin to leave.”
- Friedrich von Logau

“All sins tend to be addictive,
and the terminal point of addiction is damnation.”
- W. H. Auden

“And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power,
and the glory, for ever.
- Matthew 6: 13 KJV

“… in hope that the creation itself
will be liberated from its bondage to decay
and brought into the glorious freedom
of the children of God.”
- Romans 8: 20,21 NIV

“For the wages of sin is death,
but the gift of God is eternal life
in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
- Romans 6:23 NIV

“To open the blind eyes,
to bring out the prisoners from the prison,
and them that sit in darkness
out of the prison house.”
- Isaiah 42:7 KJV
