[b]Linked together with adamantine chains![/b](Thomas Watson, "The Mischief of Sin")Sin is the womb of sorrowand the grave of comfort! Sin turns the body into a hospital. It causes fevers, ulcers, and cancers.Sin is the Trojan horse, out of which a whole troop of afflictions come. Sin drowned the old world, and burnt Sodom. Sin and punishment are linked together with adamantine chains! Sin as naturally draws punishment to itas the magnet draws iron!Sin is a coal which not only blackensbut burns! Sin draws hell at its heels. "The wicked shall be turned into hell." Psalm 9:7Sin lays men low in the grave, and in hell toowithout repentance. Sin first temptsand then damns!

Sin's progression can be found in James 1v14-15, But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin, and sin, when it is full grown, brings forth death'.In James 4v7 it tells us to resist the devil. But before we can resist the devil, we must submit to God.Let's do that.God bless.
