“Go. From now on sin no more” (John 8:11b).
Jesus is on to something. A society dismissive of sin’s reality slips further into the abyss of moral depravity and decay. The tendency of an academically advanced culture to categorize and explain away every wrong, every crime, and every sin as a disease, disorder, or predisposition is but a progressive way of making excuses and declaring in all things, “It’s not my fault.” A revival of personal responsibility will be had only when there is a recovery of the idea of sin.
