(Winslow, "Holiness, the Fruit of the Chastening of Love")
Hell is full of the Divine holiness;
in the manifestation of justice; holiness in
its most glorious exercise.
How fearfully are the lost now learning this truth!
Think it not a trifling matter, unconverted reader,
to look into the bottomless pit, and to know that
there is but a step and you are there! You walk to
the end of the treacherous plank, and you are gone!
O solemn thought! but one step between you and
the quenchless flame! but one step between you
and endless torment!
Throughout eternity the lost soul will be testifying
to this truth: "God is holy; I was a sinner; I rejected
His salvation, I turned my back upon His gospel,
I despised His Son, I hated God Himself, I lived in
my sins, I loved my sins, I died in my sins, and now
I am lost! to all eternity lost! And God is righteous
in my condemnation!"
