Moreover, sin is committed against an infinite God. The ill-desert6 of any evil deed is to be determined in part by the dignity of the person against whom it is directed. To strike a brother is wrong; to strike a parent is worse. To strike a fellow-soldier is punishable with chains; to strike a commanding officer is punishable with death. On this principle, the Bible reasons, “If one man sin against another, the judge shall judge him: but if a man sin against the LORD, who shall intreat for him?” (1Sa 2:25). God is our Maker, Father, Governor, and Judge. He is glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders. He is the best of all friends, the greatest of all beings, the most bountiful of all benefactors. By ties stronger than death and more lasting than the sun, we are bound to love, fear, honor, and obey Him. To sin against Him is so impudent, ungrateful, and wicked that no created mind can ever adequately estimate its atrocity; and so, it is an infinite evil. – William Plumer
