christianaudio Respectable Sins: Confronting the Sins We Tolerate - Unabridged Audiobook on CD

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 readers who long to thoughtfully examine their lives and discover a deeper walk with God. Unabridged. 5 CDs. 6.25 hours. Read by John Haag.

I am using this book with a small group from my Church. We love it and we are finding it to be a great followup to an earlier study from The Pursuit of Holoness.

Respectable Sins by Jerry BridgesThe first book I ever studied in a small group was Pursuit of Holiness by Jerry Bridges a gem of a book which I still have. Respectable Sins is an admirable companion. Immensely readable, the truths contained in it are both easy to grasp and difficult to implement. We are all guilty of sinning but, as Bridges says, we excuse ourselves. This book challenges that attitude: any sin, however, small, is anathema to God and we would do well to develop zero tolerance towards the little misdemeanours. Sins such as anger, pride, self-righteousness and sins of the tongue are all familiar to us and are sin even when present to a very minor degree. Add to the list ungodliness, anxiety, frustration, discontentment, unthankfulness, an independent spirit, selfishness, inconsiderateness, lack of self-control, judgmentalism, envy, jealousy and worldliness there is no area of our lives where, if we are honest with ourselves, we can claim to be sin-free.Such a long list might seem disheartening, but Jerry Bridges offers encouraging advice, practical help and real stories which give the reader confidence in defeating sin. An accompanying discussion guide, suitable for both personal and group study, is a useful tool for practical action. Read the book slowly, pausing to examine your life in the light of each chapter. Life-changing.
