DISEASE CAUSED BY SIN

Tell a man who has always accounted himself a good Christian that his rheumatism is the effect of sin and he will feel insulted. Likely as not he would say, "It's a lie," for he believes himself to be free from sin. In the First Epistle of John, 1 : 8, we read: "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us."

Job made that mistake and suffered for it. Accustomed to hear himself well spoken of as a just and upright man, he grew self-satisfied. He was asleep in sin, and a pretty rough awakening had to come. When sickness and disaster came upon him, he was patient for a while, but finally, seeing no sin in himself, commenced accusing God.
