54 SIX THEOSOPHIC POINTS consent to anything passionate or evil being done ; that he may see that the children of God do love more the love of God and do cleave more to it than to any temporal good; and that God's children are not at home in this world, but only pilgrims, who gladly relinquish everything of this world, so that they may but inherit the kingdom of heaven. 28. All this the Spirit of God puts before the evil-doer in the life's light, and exhorts him there- by to conversion. But if he will not, then the wrath of God makes hellish fire from it, and finally gnaws him, to see if even yet he would know him- self and repent. Persisteth he in wickedness, then is he a wholly evil tree, grown in the wrath of God, and belongs to the abyss, to the dark world of anguish, to the dark God Lucifer; there he must devour his own abominations. So much on- the third point.
