C. H Spurgeon: Preaching The Wrath To Come, From A Sermon Entitled "The Portion Of The Ungodly," Delivered April 13, 1862

The Lord Jesus, though the most loving of spirits, was the most awful, (- in the old-fashioned sense of awe-inspiring or terrifying of preachers) and in his sermons, while there is everything that could melt and woo, there is no lack of the great and terrible thunderbolt, and the sounding forth of wrath to come, and the judgment which must await the impenitent.

But again, you will say to me, wherefore speak you thus?

Why not dwell upon more pleasant themes?

Because, as the Lord my God liveth, before whom I stand, I would be free of the blood of all men.
