Publisher's Summary

As Christians, we believe that all sins are considered equal in God's eyes. Yet while evangelicals continue to decry the Big Ones - such as abortion, adultery, and violence - we often overlook more deceptive sins. It seems we have created a sliding scale where gossip, jealousy, and selfishness comfortably exist within the church. In short, some sins have simply become acceptable.

Acclaimed author Jerry Bridges believes that just as culture has lost the concept of sin, the church faces the same danger. Throughout, Jerry encourages victory over personal sin through the gospel's transforming power. This release is perfect for listeners who long to thoughtfully examine their lives and discover a deeper walk with God.

Overall a good book

Some very good points on areas we commonly accept in the church. Even if you don't have the same convictions, the book encourages thoughtful consideration and sharpening of our relationship with God.

Excelente

Often these ‘respectable sins’ are easily dismissed. The author addresses areas where the self righteous person rarely visits or admits. I know for myself I was personally convicted and I am thankful that someone had the courage to address these areas because so many books are written on the ’big outward’ sins but too few on the ‘respectable ‘ sins. A must read for those of us desiring to please the Lord from the inside out.

Good one!

Extremely insightful about all of our subtle sins that we tend to downplay in our life and some we don't even think of-we tend to think we are still morally good even though we don't commit heinous acts. But in God's eyes, sin is sin. Bridges also shares where the sin originates in our life and how to work on becoming more Christlike. He also captures the whole outline at the end of the book as a recap to put it all together. I love how Bridges is so candid and humble in his book. Narrator wasn't bad either on a 1.45 speed.

Convicting book

With each chapter, I felt a renewed sense of checking my heart with God and realized again that I all too often take my relationship with God for granted.

Excellent book!

He exposed my sins while letting me know that this is why Christ came (to pay for my sin) and that I could not handle the reality of my evil were it not that I am secure in Christ. He let me know that I do not have any acceptable sins because all sins are truly evil in God's eyes and he helped me see the evil moe like God's sees evil. He helped me see that my future sins are actually (were actually) placed on Christ to bear. That is such a painful thought that I would continue to sin with my understanding that Jesus bore all my sins upon Him. Thank you Jesus for paying the debt I owe.

Sin looked at through the eyes of truth when confronted by that which we deem
" respectable"
