All souls are in the hand of the great Creator: We all have sinned, and our souls must be lost, if God deal with us according to his holy law; but we are invited to come to Christ.
If a man who had shown his faith by his works, had a wicked son, whose character and conduct were the reverse of his parent's, could it be expected he should escape the Divine vengeance on account of his father's piety?
