THE TWO MOST TERRIBLE THINGS ON EARTH
Jesse M. Hendley
The two most terrible things on earth, according to
God, are SOUL-DEATH and EXPOSED SINS. I said,
"According to God." I mean, as God sees things; from
His viewpoint; looking down at mankind from His
vantage point in Heaven; from the perspective of
eternity. From the eternal viewpoint, the most
tremendous facts are THE DEATH OF A HUMAN SOUL and THE
THOUSANDS OF UNFORGIVEN SINS FACING EVERY INDIVIDUAL

Here we learn what is the greatest work in the world!
TURNING A SINNER BACK TO GOD FROM THE ERROR OF HIS
WAY! God says nothing is more important. There is
nothing greater you can do for God, someone else or
yourself than TURN PEOPLE FROM SIN TO GOD. God help
each of us as we read these pages to say in our
hearts, "Amen, Lord ...
