For William P.

Friday, August 01, 2008Respectable Sins Host(s): Char Binkley

It's easy to become preoccupied with sins that have obvious grim consequences such as adultery, violence, and abortion. As a result we often overlook the more deceptive ones that have slowly become "acceptable" sins that we tolerate in ourselves such as jealousy, anger, pride, unthankfulness, and judgementalism. How do we overcome these subtle sins? Jerry Bridges, author of "Respectable Sins, Confronting the Sins We Tolerate" (Navpress, ISBN# 1-60006-140-0) offers a message of hope, grace, and victory that he experienced in the trenches of his own battles with sin.
