The love of God, with arms extended on a cross, bars the way to hell. But if that love is ignored, rejected, and finally refused, there comes a time when love can only weep while man pushes into the self-chosen alienation which Christ went to the cross to avert.—Michael Green
2 Timothy 2:12 (NIV) If we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us.
