Scandalized: hurt by the sins of others

December 27, 2016

 

There are four sorts of persons that use to be scandalized, or hurt by the sins of others.

 

1. Malignant enemies of Christ and godliness who are partly hardened in their malice, and partly rejoiced at the dishonour of religion, and insult over those that give the offence, or take occasion by it to blaspheme or persecute.

 

2. Some that are more equal, and hopeful, and in greater possibility of conversion, who are stopt by it in their desires, and purposes, and attempts of a godly life.

 

3. Unsound professors, or hypocrites, who are turned by scandals from the way of godliness, which they seemed to walk in.

 

4. Weak Christians, who are troubled and hindered in their way of piety, or else drawn into some particular error or sin, though they fall not off.
