“If Sinners Be Damned…”

Victorian preacher C.H. Spurgeon had a way of cutting through Christian excuses…

“If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees, imploring them to stay. If hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and un-prayed for.”

Some things are worth everything and every effort.
