Tim George's comment on 2014-07-18 10:42:00:

Knowing the terror of the Lord we persuade men. God knows our hearts, and will reward us at the Judgment Day, when we stand before the Lord. God has committed to us the ministry of reconciliation and the word of reconciliation. To wit that God was in Christ, not imputing their sins against them, but has committed that ministry of reconciliation to us. We must fear God, and preach the Word without the fear of man. Man can only destroy this body, but God can destroy body, as well as soul in the Lake of Fire. Therefore we must warn every man to repent for the Kingdom of God is near. Let everyone turn from their sins, to faith in God, and repentance toward our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. For He is standing at the door of your heart waiting for you to open the door, so that He can come in. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shall be saved, and thine house.
