Don't Make Light of Sin, Nor Christ

"Many Christians talk about sin as if it were merely a relational tiff between God and man, and what is needed is for us simply to apologize and accept God's forgiveness.  That image of sin as lovers' quarrel, though, distorts the relationship in which we stand to God.  It communicates that there is no broken law, no violated justice, no righteous wrath, no holy judgment - and therefore, ultimately, no need for a substitute to bear that judgement, either."  What Is the Gospel, by Greg Gilbert
