"This instance of a fatal choice, made in an eminently critical moment, is by no means a solitary one.... the matter of some important duty, and particularly the all-important duty of religion, the choice that is made, and the decision formed, become final and decisive; the turning point of life for good or ill, for weal or woe. It is henceforth to be either life or death, heaven or hell,....what though one might succeed in gaining the whole world, what yet shall it profit a man if, meantime, he shall lose his own soul? or as Luke has it, lose himself."
F, Marshall, Thomas, choice, drinking
