Excerpt from Sermons on Important Subjects
But Christ says, Enter ye in at the strait gate for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be who go in thereat. Again, when one said unto him, Lord, are there few, that be saved He said unto them, strive to enter in at the strait gate for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up and bath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without and to kndck at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us and he shall answer and say unto you, I know youvnot whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, we have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are depart from me all ye work ers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. From these declarations of the Lord Je sus Christ, it is evident that many will be ex cluded from the kingdom of glory. And they, who are excluded, cannot be admitted at any future time. For Christ says to such an one, as shall be cast into hell, Verily, I say unto thee, thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing. And again he says, If thy hand ofi'end thee.
