The End of Sin

December 31, 2008

Struck by a recurring theme in the Protestant Ars Moriendi. One of the many advantages brought by death, at least, by death as subverted by the work of Christ, is the end of sin. No one puts this more succinctly than Otto Werdmueller, who, in his First Book of Death (Eng. trans. Miles Coverdale) writes, ‘sin ceaseth not, till we come to be blessed with a shovel’.

Happy New Year.
