Last Things, the Four


Last Things, the Four
   These are Death, Judgment, Heaven, Hell. (See Eschatology.) These subjects being so very solemn in their import, they are frequently taken as topics of instruction or of sermons during the Advent Season, when our thoughts are turned to the contemplation of our Lord's second coming "in His glorious Majesty to judge both the quick and the dead."
