Thomas Watson – What is Forgiveness? (2 of 5)

9 Aug

2. God, in forgiving sin, remits the guilt and penalty
Guilt cries for justice. No sooner had Adam eaten the apple, than he saw the ‘flaming sword’ and heard the curse; but in remission God indulges the sinner; he seems to say to him, ‘Though you have fallen into the hands of my justice and deserve to die, yet I will absolve you, and whatever is charged against you shall be discharged.’

~Thomas Watson~
