He who cherishes iniquity — warms the most venomous of serpents in his bosom!
(George Lawson, "A Practical Exposition of the Book of Proverbs" 1821)
"For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them!" Proverbs 1:32
The sins of men, unless pardoned through the blood of Christ, shall be their everlasting destruction. For he who turns away from God — turns his back upon eternal happiness. And he who cherishes iniquity — warms the most venomous of serpents in his bosom!
Lost sinners owe their ruin to . . .
their willful hardness of heart,
their abuse of divine mercy, and
their indifference to God's salvation.
