Augustine Day by Day - August 4 - Not Every Sin is Sinful

"Many sins are committed through pride, but not all happen proudly. They happen so often out of ignorance and out of human weakness. Many sins are even committed by people weeping and groaning in their distress."

-- Nature and Grace 29, 33

Prayer. Lord, I have done much wrong. I cannot hope for a speedy rest for myself. May my torments be enough till your coming. Let me be tortured now. Then, when you come, spare me.

-- Sermon 327, 2

August 4
