From this Sunday’s message at Calvary Chapel on Staten Island – “Why is this so hard?’ – Questions and Answers for the 21st Century Family – Part 2

“Sin is the universal addiction to self that develops when individuals put themselves in the center of their personal world in a way that leads to abuse of others and self. Sin causes sinners to seek instant gratification, to be first, and to get more than their share – now.“

– J. Keith Miller
