OUR PREPARATION FOR THE JUDGMENT

 

Now, against this fear of the judgment we ought to have four remedies. The

first is good works: "Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? Do that

which is good, and thou shalt have praise from the same."30 The second is

confession and repentance for sins committed; and this ought to include

sorrow in thinking of hem, feeling of shame in confessing them, and all

severity in making satisfaction for them. And these will take away the

eternal punishment. The third is giving of alms, which makes all things

clean: "Make unto you friends of the mammon of iniquity; that when you

shall fail, they may receive you into everlasting dwellings."31 The fourth

is charity, viz., the love of God and our neighbor, for "charity covereth a

multitude of sins."32
