“Let me assure you, Mr. Witbooi, that if you make your peace with God — whether you die right now of a heart attack; or are put to death for murder; or die naturally later on — you too will go to Heaven. I also assure you that my father, whom you are accused of having murdered, will then be the first to welcome you there. However, Mr. Witbooi, if you do not repent and if you die in your sins — I assure you that you will spend eternity in hell-fire and damnation, for ever!
“Mr. Witbooi, three men died on a little hill called Calvary. Two were guilty robbers; but the One in the middle, the Lord Jesus, was innocent. Robbers, as you know, include those who go around beating up old people and leaving them for dead after stealing from them. Both of those robbers jeered at the innocent Jesus crucified between them.
