It was a godly pastor of another generation who said: "We cannot sin without suffering" [J. Sidlow Baxter]. Yet this present culture seems to take issue with that idea. There is a pervasive notion that you can sin and avoid all or most of the consequences. In fact if I make a financial mistake, I have a right to expect someone to bail me out. If I make a moral mistake, I have a right to a fresh start...letting bygones be bygones.
