In a book called All Thumbs Guide to VCR’s which is a repair guide for amateurs, author Gene Williams begins with a warning. He writes: “Getting a jolt form the incoming 120 volts ac (120 Vac) is more that just unpleasant; it can be fatal. Studies have shown that it takes very little current to kill. Even a small amount of current can paralyze your muscles, and you won’t be able to let go. Just a fraction more and your heart muscle can become paralyzed.”

Williams knows that the naïve amateur repairman doesn’t have sufficient respect for the lethal power of electricity.

The amateur knows that a shock hurts but he thinks he can always let go of the wire. It is the paralyzing power of even a small amount of electricity that makes it so dangerous. So it is with sin. People dabble with sin because they don’t fear its power to paralyze the muscles of the soul. Then it’s too late.

Even when people know a sinful behavior is hurting them and they want to quit, they can’t let go. Sin is never safe!
