sin

A Quote by Saint Ephraim the Syrain on god, love, divine, spirit, enlightenment, hearts, grace, suffering, and sin

You victorious martyrs who endured torments gladly for the sake of God and Savior, you who have boldness of speech toward the Lord Himself, you saints, intercede for us who are timid and sinful men, full of sloth, that the grace of Christ may come upon us, and enlighten the hearts of all of us so that we may love Him.

A Quote by Saint Tikon of Zadonsk on god, christianity, heaven, heart, mercy, conscience, love, sin, compassion, and gratitude

It is demanded of us, Christians, that we receive these heavenly and most sweet tidings {the Gospel} gratefully as they are sent from Heaven, and that from a pure heart we always give thanks to God our Benefactor,  Who so freely had mercy on us, and that we show holy obedience and compliance in all thankfulness.  For conscience itself instructs and convinces us to be thankful to our Benefactor.  He loved us who are unworthy.  Let us also love Him Who is worthy of all love.  Love requires that we never offend the beloved.  God is offended by every sin.  Let us keep away from every sin and let us do His holy will that we may not offend Him as our compassionate Father and Benefactor.

A Quote by Saint Innocent Apostle to America on god, christianity, love, suffering, mercy, gratitude, virtue, sin, good, thanksgiving, and debt

For whom did Jesus suffer?  For all sinners, from Adam till the end of the world.  He suffered also for those very men who tortured Him, and for His enemies who had delivered Him to that torture, and for those who, having received from Him countless benefits, not only did not thank Him but even hated and persecuted Him.  He also suffered for all of us who offend Him daily by our untruths, wickedness, and terrible indifference to His suffering for us who by our ingratitude and abominable sins, as it were, crucify Him a second time.

A Quote by Saint Macarius of Egypt on good, evil, mindfulness, freedom, sin, vice, thoughts, spirituality, hope, and truth

The most important work that a spiritual wrestler can do is to enter
within the heart, there to fight Satan; to hate and repel the thoughts
that he inspires and to wage war upon him.

A Quote by Saint Symeon the New Theologian on hatred, egotism, pride, humility, freedom, sin, rightousness, serpent, and suffering

A person who suffers bitterly when slighted or insulted should recognize from this that he still harbors the ancient serpent in his breast.  If he quietly endures the insult or responds with great humility, he weakens the serpent and lessens its hold.  But if he replies acrimoniously or brazenly, he gives it strength to pour its venom into his heart and to feed mercilessly on his inward parts.  In this way the serpant becomes increasingly powerful; it destroys his souls strength and his attempts to set himself right, compelling him to live for sin and to be completely dead to rightousness.

Sin, first and foremost, is the cause of every damage in this world. The evil one is the master of this sin, the master of this damage, but we have the Lord Jesus Christ, the Master of the Kingdom of God to defeat any kind of sin.

A Quote by Pirke Avot /Ethics of the Fathers on sin, ignorance, piety, bashfulness, temper, business, and to be a man

He would also say: A boor cannot be sin-fearing, an ignoramus cannot be pious, a bashful one cannot learn, a short-tempered person cannot teach, nor does anyone who does much business grow wise. In a place where there are no men, strive to be a man
