What is Sin? – Susanna Wesley

by | July 31, 2020

John Wesley one day walked to his mother and asked: “Mum, define sin for me”. Her aswer was this: “Whatever weakens your reasoning, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, or takes away your relish for spiritual things, in short, if anything increases the authority of the flesh over the spirit, that to you becomes sin, however good it is in itself.”

– Susanna Wesley –
