A few, easy, or gentle strokes!
Let no man think to kill sin — with a few, easy, or gentle strokes!
He who has once smitten a serpent, if he does not beat it until it is slain — may regret that he ever began the quarrel!
Just so it is with the one who undertakes to deal with sin — and does not constantly pursue it to its death!
"Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry." Colossians 3:5
