God's hatred of sin

Blueridge Believer

Puritan Board Professor
(J. A. James, "The Practical Believer Delineated" 1852)

The death of Christ, apprehended by faith, presents
the strongest motives to holiness—by setting forth in
the most vivid and striking manner . . .
the evil nature of sin;
the holiness and justice of God;
His determination to punish transgression;
the fearfulness of falling into the hands of the living God.

Not all the judgments God ever inflicted—nor all
the threatenings He ever denounced, give such an
impressive warning against sin, and admonition
to righteousness—as the death of Christ.

The torments of the bottomless pit are not so
dreadful a demonstration of God's hatred of sin,
as the agonies of the cross!

John Angel James was a great writer. I have his Addresses to Young Men, but one thing that sticks out in particular is the blurb Don Kistler wrote about him on the back cover: "While a Calvinist by creed, James was more interested in holy living than doctrinal niceties"...or something to that effect.
