Original Sin (Quote 3)

. . . “when Augustine spoke to his people of the terrible wrath of God, they would actually cry out in terror.*”

*Sermon 131:  “What then does the Lord say?  ‘Serve the Lord in fear, and rejoice unto Him with trembling.’ So the Apostle too, ‘Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.  For it is God who works in you.’  Therefore rejoice with trembling: ‘Lest at any time the Lord be angry.’  I see that you anticipate me by your crying out.  For you know what I am about to say, you anticipate it by crying out.”
