“As the salt flavors every drop in the Atlantic, so does sin affect every atom of our nature. It is so sadly there, so abundantly there, that if you cannot detect it, you are deceived.”
- Charles H. Spurgeon

Sin is still sin,
no matter what some may say
changes to the Word of God
won’t stand up on judgment day.
Sin is still dark and evil,
it’s full of greed and pride
don’t you believe for a minute
sin from God you can hide.
- Deborah Ann
