The Parasite

Posted: April 18, 2013 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, Discipleship, The Christian Life

“It is not sin that calls human beings to live and love, to make music and art, to work and create … to play and dance. But it is sin that undercuts and perverts them all. Sin doesn’t create things. It has no originality, no creativity, no being in itself. Sin lives off that which is good. It is a parasite, feeding greedily on the goodness of what God has made.”

– Paul Marshall, Heaven Is Not My Home
