Sin is what you do when your great is not satisfied with God. No one sins because it holds out some promise of happiness. That promise enslaves us until we believe God is more to be desired than life itself.
Faith stands or falls on the truth that the future with God is more satisfying than the one promised by sin. Where this truth is embraced and God is cherished above all, the power of sin is broken. The power of sin is the power of deceit.
