D. A. Carson quotes Richard Topping:
“Remember we live in a time when six of the seven deadly sins are medical conditions—and pride is a virtue.”
Reading this, I hurried to remind myself of the list of seven sins Here it is:
Yes, it’s true: we’ve turned all but one into a disease. And the last we’ve turned into a virtue. We’re not guilty; we’re ill. We’re not culprits; we’re victims. We don’t need forgiveness; we need therapy. We don’t need a change of heart; we need a change of treatment.
We’re psychologically sick. It’s not our fault. It’s our parents’ fault. It’s society’s fault. And deep down inside of us we’re good!
Gee, Officer Krupke!
