Description

Have Christians become so preoccupied with the major sins of our society that we have lost sight of our need to deal with our own more subtle sins? In this booklet adapted from Jerry Bridges’ bestselling book Respectable Sins, Jerry returns to his trademark theme of holiness and addresses these more subtle sins (often considered acceptable) and how to deal with them through the remedy of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Sins such as jealousy, anger, pride, judgmentalism, and unthankfulness are addressed in this booklet. Jerry writes not from a height of spiritual accomplishment but from the trenches of his own battles with sin. In his admonitions, Jerry offers a message of hope in the profound mercy of the gospel and the transforming grace of God as the means to overcome our subtle sins.

    By Big Daddy Mas
    Very good essay on the everyday sins that most of us just seem to not notice anymore, or except as "normal human nature." Brother Bridges gives great guidance on becoming aware and dealing with these sins through the Gospel, prayer and Holy Spirit. The one thing to keep in mind, as reflected in this booklet is that the victory over sin is one through the acceptance of Christ, from there we begin the process of mitigating the power of the flesh through the will and power of the Spirit. A very good read, now I think I need to get Respectable Sins by Brother Bridges.
