“You cannot sin and not suffer from it. It just can’t be done. I spent a great deal of my life trying to sin and to do away with my conscience at the same time. One of the things I like best about being a Christian is the way that I suffer when I sin – it is the chastisement which guarantees me that I am one of God’s people. I like it. It feels good. It feels like correction. It feels as if I am being straightened out. . . . When I was only half-believing God, he actually did come into me and make me miserable every time I sinned. That is how I learned that he really is believable.”
Ted Wise, preaching at Peninsula Bible Church, 11 June 1972.
