A Love Affair with Sin

“Our love affairs with sin are not just a matter of morality, though, but of joy. This is not just about faithfulness to God, but about finding our deepest, most satisfying fulfillment. Many people think following Jesus means surrendering our happiness. You can either enjoy a fun, passionate, and exciting life here for a short time or live a bland, boring, but safe life forever with God. That lie is a quiet, but violent concentration camp, fencing men and women in, keeping them away from God, and torturing them with lesser pleasures that only lead to a swift and yet never-ending death. If you want to be truly happy–even in this life, surrounded by everything beautiful, fun, and exciting in this world–you want to be found with Jesus.” (Marshall Segal, Killjoys: The Seven Deadly Sins, p. 9)
