I feel that we can say about this doctrine of sin what I once heard a man say about the observance of the Lord’s Day.  He said he had come to the conclusion that the Lord’s Day, like the Lord Himself, was in danger of dying between two thieves, the two thieves being Saturday night and Monday morning.  He said that, increasingly, Saturday night was extended and extended and blended into Sunday, and then people started their Monday morning quite early on Sunday evening.  Sunday becomes just a few hours during the morning, and then we think, “Well, that is enough now.  We have been to church once.”  Thus, our Lord’s Day has been lost between two thieves. – D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981)
