If I offered you a cup full of cyanide, would you drink it? Not if you are in your right mind!
What about a tablespoon? Still no, right?
What about a drop? Doesn’t matter, does it!
Why is that? Because Cyanide is a poison that will kill you no matter what amount you ingest.
Now, here’s the point: sin is the same way.
Satan has offered each of us a form of spiritual cyanide. For some, it is lying. For others, stealing. For others, pornography, adultery, or even homosexuality. You know what? It doesn’t matter before God: all of these sins will send the sinner to Hell.
But God doesn’t like sending people to Hell, and that is why He sent Jesus to die for our sins. If we respond to God’s love for us by loving Him in return—and thereby hating our own sins—then God promises to forgive us, because of what Jesus did on the Cross. But, if we spurn God’s love, we have no one to blame but ourselves.
