Respectable Sins by Jerry Bridges
“Respectable Sins Confronting the Sin We Tolerate” by Jerry Bridges, shows the Christian reader how we have become so preoccupied with the big sins of abortion and homosexuality- the sins that are considered unethical or immoral- that we ignore the “small sins” that truly hamper our spiritual growth and dishonor our God.
We are admonished by Bridges to aspire to live holy lives. He identifies in his life and certainly in the lives of his readers the sins of unthankfulness, selfishness, impatience, irritability, anger, judmentalism, envy, and the sins of the tongue among a few. It is a book well worth reading as we try to take the plank from our eye and recommit ourselves to living the way God intended, as saints of the Most High.
