Let no man think to kill sin–with a few, easy, or gentle strokes!
He who has once smitten a serpent, if he does not beat it until it is slain–may regret that he ever began the quarrel!
Just so it is with the one who undertakes to deal with sin–and does not constantly pursue it to its death!
"Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry." Colossians 3:5
