Not committing murder: check! Not committing adultery: check!

Not being lazy. . . . Not being gluttonous. . . . Not being inconsiderate or insensitive. . . . Come on! Everybody does those! What does God really expect?

He expects us to be killing sin, or it will kill us—both the big, obvious sins as well as the commonplace, familiar sins. And those subtle, elusive sins often slip most easily into our character without our knowing it—making them the hardest to kill of all.

Here pastor and counselor Rush Witt introduces you to this problem of diehard sins and provides a helpful doctrine of sin in general, before laying out a method for change. Learn how you can enter into your struggle against destructive daily habits, understand your needs in the fight, and bring Christ and his provisions to bear upon your beliefs and desires—equipping yourself to gradually kill the slippery sins that seem so unkillable.
