Some who read these lines

(The life and letters of John Angell James)

Consider that the eternal loss of the soul is not a rare--but a
very common occurrence! So far from being a rare thing for
a soul to go to hell--it is a much rarer thing for them to go to
heaven! Jesus tells us that the road to eternal destruction is
thronged; while the way to eternal life is traveled by few. Hell
opens its mouth wide--and swallows up multitudes in eternal
perdition! Every day brings you nearer to everlasting bliss--or
everlasting torments. You may die at any moment; and you
are as near to heaven or hell--as you are to death. Some who
read these lines
will very likely spend their eternity in hell.

"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad
 is the road that leads to destruction--and many enter through it.
 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life--and
 only a few find it." Matthew 7:13-14
