Westminster Larger Catechism: Question 28

Question 28

What are the punishments of sin in this world?

The punishments of sin in this world are either inward, as blindness of mind, (Eph. 4:18) a reprobate sense, (Rom. 1:28) strong delusions, (2 Thess. 2:11) hardness of heart, (Rom. 2:5) horror of conscience, (Isa. 33:14, Gen. 4:13, Matt. 27:4) and vile affections; (Rom. 1:26) or outward, as the curse of God upon the creatures of our sakes, (Gen. 3:17) and all other evils that befall us in our bodies, names, estates, relations, and employments; (Deut. 28:15–18) together with death itself. (Rom. 6:21,23)
