If you died today, where would you go?
I remember reading how Elder Ambrose Dudley (father of Hardshell founding father Thomas P. Dudley), at a service at Bryan's Station church in Kentucky (one of the oldest in that state, if not the oldest), asked this question of those who were present. Why do not Hardshells do so? Elder Ambrose Dudley (who died just before the Black Rock Address) had no reluctance doing so. He also was no Arminian. Why do Hardshells ignore the unregenerate in their addresses? Their forefathers did not have such a reluctance to do so. Do they not know that the Holy Spirit has often attended such interogatives to awaken the consciences of alien sinners? Why do the Hardshells think that the Holy Spirit cannot attend such Gospel addresses with his power?
