Penetrating insights into freedom, sin, and justice

The unregenerate have no such freedoms, because they seek not freedom from sin but in sin. They desire freedom from the consequences of their sin, but not from sin itself…

A sinful people want sin redefined to their advantage. They want their own inclination called justice and contrary views condemned…

An immoral people have no moral fortitude to stand for anything except the right to be immoral. They cannot stand up for righteousness because that is a Christian concept. They cannot stand up for a justice for which they have no standard.
