We Never See Sin Aright Until We See It As Against God

Quoted in The Pursuit of Holiness, J. Bridges, p. 20, cf. Gen. 39:9

W. S. Plumer said, "We never see sin aright until we see it as against God...All sin is against God in this sense: that it is His law that is broken, His authority that is despised, His government that is set at naught...Pharaoh and Balaam, Saul and Judas each said, &ls;I have sinned'; but the returning prodigal said, &ls;I have sinned against heaven and before thee'; and David said, &ls;Against Thee, Thee only have I sinned.'"
