Sermon Illustrations

Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “He who is alone with his sins is utterly alone.” In fact he goes on to say, “The pious fellowship permits no one to be a sinner. So everyone must conceal his sin from himself and from their fellowship. We dare not be sinners. Many Christians are unthinkably horrified when a real sinner is suddenly discovered among the righteous. So we remain alone with our sin, living in lies and hypocrisy.”
