Interesting Quote

March 5, 2010

I came across this quote on Carlos Whitaker’s blog today.  I thought it was stirring.

“. . .the doctrine of regeneration says that we are born again in Christ, dead to our sin, we have a new nature in Christ now. New hearts, new desires, new passions, new minds, a new creation. All of it. Managing your sin does you no good. It might make you a better citizen but it gets you no closer to Christ. God wants to change our desires from the filthy depraved sinners to the clean, washed and renewed children of God.

Managing sin is not gospel. A brutal ripping out of sin is gospel.”
