Excerpt from A Sermon Delivered at the Ordination of Mr. Lyman Cutler, as Pastor of the Evangelical Congregational Church in Pepperell, Mass: January 22, 1851
In this connection may be noticed a remarkable illustration of the inevitable physical evil resulting from sin, in the fact that all men die. The good and the bad alike, the penitent and the incorrigible, die. Repentance in this respect makes no dif'erence. Death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned. Repentance often makes no difference in the humiliation and the physical sufferings of the death-bed. A good man dies often by as severe a process, with disease as revolting, with struggles as long protracted, as are those suffered by the wicked. How dieth the wise man? As the fool.
