No Fear of God Before Their Eyes

The ungodly, as they view and live life, as they carry our their desires and ambitions, do so devoid of the fear of God. When someone has just had his picture taken with a flash camera, he will have a bright spot before his eyes for the next minute or two. Everything he looks at […]
