This was in the forward of a book I recently read (True Evangelism by LS Chafer, but forward written by AB Winchester):

Jerome, in the fourth century, declared that “light views of sin induced false views of God”, and the late master preacher MacLaren of Manchester stated that “ninety percent of all doctrinal errors have grown up around defective views of sin.”  Any theory that minimizes sin minimizes the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ and the regenerative work of the Holy Spirit.
