Joseph Alleine (1634 -1668)

“Oh, better were it for you to die in a jail, in a ditch, in a dungeon, than to die in your sins. If death, as it will take away all your comforts, would take away all your sins too, it were some mitigation; but your sins will follow you when your friends leave you, and all your worldly enjoyments shake hands with you. Your sins will not die with you as a prisoner’s other debts will; but they will go to judgement with you there to be your accusers; and they will go to hell with you there to be your tormentors.”

Joseph Alleine (1634 -1668)
