How Hateful Would Sin Be To You!

Were hell now opened, and saw you the damned in chains of darkness, and if you heard their dreadful yelling, and found the steam of the bottomless pit, ye would then in every sense get some discovery of sin. It is only sin that has kindled that dreadful and inextinguishable fire of wrath, and cast the damned into it; and it is sin that holds them there, and torments them there. If you had but a just impression of these things, how hateful would sin be to you!
