Augustine: What Has Already Been Weighed

“In weighing our sins, let us not use a deceitful balance, weighing at our own discretion what we will, and how we will, calling this heavy and that light: but let us use the divine balance of the Holy Scriptures, as taken from the treasury of the Lord, and by it weigh every offense, nay, not weigh, but rather recognize what has already been weighed by the Lord.”

– Augustine
