Complacency of the Lost

Is it not a horrible thing that Satan leads men to say, “Do not trouble us with your gospel! Do not bother us with religion! Do not come here with your tracts! Let us alone!” They claim the wretched right to perish in their sins, the liberty to destroy their own souls. We know who rules when men speak thus: it is the prince of darkness, who makes them hate the light. Oh, my hearers, do not some of you say, “We do not want to be worried with thoughts of death and judgment and eternity; we do not desire to hear about repentance and faith in a Savior. All we want of religious people is that they will let us alone.” This cruel kindness we cannot grant them. How can we stand by and see them perish?

-Charles Spurgeon
