Notes:

Rom. 14:10 “You, then, why do you judge your brother or sister? Or why do you treat them with contempt? For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat.”

“When you speak of heaven, let your face light up… When you speak of hell well then, your everyday face will do.” Charles Haddon Spurgeon
