09Oct1864, Overwhelmed and Aghast

HARDWICK, October 9th, 1864.
Fred read to me a powerful and earnest sermon of Liddon's on the Whole Counsel of God, which dwelt a good deal on the terrible subject of Future Punishment, which, though one before which Angels would veil their faces, is just now discussd even in newspapers, many questioning the Eternity of punishment. I became much overwhelmed and aghast with dwelling upon it ; but a solemn comfort has come to me with the desire to trust entirely to the Love of God, and to be content to know nothing clearly now. Of one thing we are certain : that He is Love and Light ; and that we are all weakness and blindness ; but shall know as we are known hereafter.
