Sin Is Not Necessarily Loving Bad Things

The great church father Augustine pointed out that sin is not necessarily loving bad things, but loving good things inordinately.  In other words, it is turning God’s gifts into idols.  It is our “enlightening” way of fulfilling the apostles description of ungrateful living in Romans 1:22-25.
