Something Useful

This is from the book of Joshua Harris, Not Even a Hint. I just think it's very practical when it comes to grey areas of sin.

"Whatever weakens your reason, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God*, or takes off the relish of spiritual things; in short whatever increases the strength and authority of your body over your mind - that thing is sin to you, however innocent it may be in itself."

* obscures your awareness of the ugliness of sin and the holiness of God
