Lecture 5, Cosmic Treason:

The Old Testament records severe warnings against violating God’s holiness. With these warnings come a threat of punishment to any who would violate the admonitions. As people, we understand the concept of crime and punishment, but as sinners, we often fail to recognize the reason for the severity of God’s justice. Shouldn’t God reserve capital punishment for sins like murder, or other acts of violence? Considering this in this message, Dr. Sproul shows how all of us have committed capital crimes.
