Struggles of Conscience
I shall attempt to address you in the following order this morning.

Not Now, but Hereafter!
It is mainly my business, today, to deal with those who may wickedly continue in sin because their judgment tarries. If the Lord does not in this world visit the ungodly with stripes, this is but the surer evidence that in the world to come there is a solemn retribution for the impenitent.

"In the world you shall have trouble, but in me you shall have peace," saith Christ,--a peace that shall make trouble
