Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

August 26, 2010 (when reason consents)

“St. Augustine teaches us that there
is in each man a Serpent,
an Eve, and an Adam.
Our senses and natural propensities are the Serpent;
the excitable desire is the Eve;
and reason is the Adam.
Our nature tempts us perpetually;
criminal desire is often excited;
but sin is not completed till reason consents.”
- Blaise Pascal

“No matter where it ends,
sin always begins
when an evil thought
is sown in the mind and heart.”
- John MacArthur
