Cosmic Treason

I am convinced that every man has at least two blind spots which effect everything that he thinks, says, and does. The first is his inability to understand the height and breadth of the holiness of God, and the second is his inability to understand the depth of the depravity of his own sin. Jonathan Edwards seems to have had a good understanding of both:

“Any sin is more or less heinous depending upon the honor and majesty of the one whom we had offended. Since God is of infinite honor, infinite majesty, and infinite holiness, the slightest sin is of infinite consequence. The slightest sin is nothing less than cosmic treason when we realize against whom we have sinned.”
