You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood, Part 2

“What is needed in a luxurious and pleasure-mad age like this, is not an encouragement of shrinking from hard obligations, but a ringing challenge from moral and spiritual teachers and pastors to all who will listen to endure hardness, to resist even unto blood in striving against sin (Heb. xii. 4). The notion that the call to martyrdom is limited to what is publicly recognized and glorified under such description is deadly heresy.”

Is the Use of Contraceptives Ever Right?, by Francis J. Hall, American Church Monthly, volume 29, 1931, pp 63-72.
