(J.C. Ryle, 1884)
"For if the trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare himself for battle?" 1 Corinthians 14:8
We need a more certain sound about the state of man after death. There is a growing disposition in this day to give up the old doctrine of the judgment of the wicked, and the eternal misery of all who die impenitent and unbelieving. Men are gradually being indoctrinated with the notion that there is hope for all beyond the grave, and that at any rate there is nothing to fear, and no punishment after death, no matter how we live or die.
I regard such teaching as most mischievous and likely to promote carelessness and immorality! Yet in hundreds of pulpits the subject is either carefully avoided, or else handled in a most unsatisfactory manner.
Let us beware of being wise above that which is written, and of ignoring, shirking, or strangling plain texts of Scripture.
"Ask for the old paths, where the good way is--and walk in it. Then you will find rest for your souls." Jeremiah 6:16
