From Our Founder

“God’s mercy does not exclude severity. Blessed be His Name, He is meek and gentle of heart, He is compassionate, almost insanely indulgent towards us; but the word remains: The wages of sin is death. He is severe with those who refuse His call. Lucifer was the first to say, ‘I will not serve’; and he didn’t do very well.”

–H. Lyman Stebbins
