Secret Sin is Social

Sin is social: although it is first and foremost defiance of God, there is no sin that does not touch the lives of others, since by subtly changing me, they change my relations with others. Secretly nurtured lust, for instance, soon affects a man’s or woman’s relations with the spouse and with other human beings.  —D.A. Carson in Christ and Culture Revisited
