Weekend Wisdom – Thomas Allin

Who would dare so much as to smile, if he really believed endless torments were certain to be the portion of some members of his household? Marriage would be a crime; each birth the occasion of an awful dread. The shadow of a possible Hell would darken every home, sadden every family hearth. All of this becomes evident when we reflect that to perpetuate the race would be to help on the perpetuation of moral evil. For if this creed be true, out of all of the yearly births a steady current is flowing on to help fill the abyss of hell, to make larger and vaster the total moral evil which is to endure forever. “The world would be one vast madhouse,” says the American scholar Hallsted, “if realizing and continued pressure of such a doctrine was present.”
