Words of Comfort: Knowledge of sin.

“Some people do not like to hear much of repentance; but I think it is so necessary that if I should die in the pulpit, I would desire to die preaching repentance, and if out of the pulpit I would desire to die practicing it.” Matthew Henry

The reason so many who camp here are so bitter against Christianity is that they heard a message that lacked a knowledge of sin (which comes by the moral Law), and therefore didn’t find a place of biblical repentance. Those who have the experience of a false conversion either remain among God’s people as “goats among the sheep,” or they fall away from the faith “and their latter end becomes worse than the first.” For a deeper understanding of this tragedy listen to “Hell’s Best Kept Secret”
