It is vain, then, that some, indeed very many, make moan over the eternal punishment and perpetual, unintermitted torments of the lost, and say they do not believe it shall be so; not, indeed, that they directly oppose themselves to Holy Scripture, but, at the suggestion of their own feelings, they soften down everything that seems hard, and give a milder turn to statements which they think are rather designed to terrify and to be received as literally true.” Augustine, Enchiridion, CXII, NPNF1, 3:273
