What is the ultimate outrage of the universe?

“What makes sin sin is not first that it hurts people, but that it blasphemes God.  This is the ultimate evil and the ultimate outrage in the universe.

The glory of God is not honored.

The holiness of God is not reverenced.

The truth of God is not sought.

The beauty of God is not treasured.

The Messiah of God is not trusted.

The promises of God are not relied upon.

The commandments of God are not obeyed.

The wrath of God is not feared.

The grace of God is not cherished.

The three persons of God (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) are not loved.”

-John Piper
