"Heaven shall open its pearly portals to admit us;
but hell’s iron gates are barred for ever against every believer."
CH Spurgeon on Spiritual Liberty
Or as the puritan prayer puts it:
"Without Him is gaping hell below me, and eternal anguish.
In Him its gates are barred to me by His precious blood!"
Or as Matt Giles puts it:
"Yet in Him is all love, and my soul is at rest,
For hell's gates have been barred through His glorious death!"
