The First Person Deceived

September 21, 2010

“We spend so much time arguing for our righteousness that it leaves little time to reflect on the reality of remaining sin.  Add to all of this the basic nature of sin.  Sin is deceitful.  It hides, it defends itself, it wears masks, it bends its shape into more acceptable forms, it points fingers of blame, and it even questions the goodness of God.  Sin always first deceives the person who is sinning the sin” (Paul Tripp, whiter than snow, pp. 132-33; emphasis mine).
