JOB 21

30 That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.

I might also state here that we also hold that light (or knowledge) brings responsibility, that the Deity has not tied His hands, as it were, in any case-is not limited. His will is supreme. He knows how to reserve the wicked to the Day of Judgment to be punished.

If He sees fit to raise an unbaptised rejector there is no reason why He should not, but we have no right to say, This man will be, or that man will not be raised and punished, or where the responsibility of such men begins. He knows, and will do right in all cases. I think the advice given by one of old time may safely be followed, whether inspired or not I know not, but it is quite in accord with the truth,

"Be not thou curious how the ungodly shall be punished, or when, but enquire how the righteous shall be saved, whose the world is, and from whom the world is created"

(2 Esdras 9:13).
