Sin - A Cancer

Sin has often been compared to cancer, and the likeness is more perfect than many think. This virulent, spreading canker got its name from its resemblance to the crab, the idea is a living disease. Sin is not like a rotten branch which may be easily blown off with the fair wind of more favourable circumstances. It is more like a living, crawling, poisoning crab in the soul, that can only be overcome by the fresh waters of a new life.
