Elder Sampson: The drunkard, the fornicator, the proud─he will receive God’s mercy. . . .

elder-sampson

The drunkard, the fornicator, the proud—he will receive God’s mercy. But he who does not want to forgive, to excuse, to justify consciously, intentionally … that person closes himself to eternal life before God, and even more so in the present life. He is turned away and not heard [by God].
