Quote by A. W. Tozer
The vague and tenuous hope that God is too kind to punish the ungodly has become a deadly opiate for the consciences of millions.
This quote suggests that many individuals cling to a belief that a benevolent and forgiving God will not condemn the wicked, exonerating them from their actions. This belief serves as a dangerous opiate, soothing their guilty conscience and preventing them from taking responsibility for their wrongdoing. It highlights how this hope can not only lead individuals astray but also hinder them from facing the consequences of their immoral behavior.
The world does not consist of 100 percent Christians and 100 percent non-Christians. There are people (a great many of them) who are slowly ceasing to be Christians but who still call themselves by that name: some of them are clergymen. There are other people who are slowly becoming Christians though they do not yet call themselves so.
