What is Quotempole?
If there is one struggle more than another in which the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong, but to those who endure to the end, it is in this struggle for eternal life. “He that shall endure to the end the same shall be saved,” were the words of Jesus, and I know of no other condition of salvation contemplated in the Gospel of Christ than this. “Be thou faithful unto death,” wrote John to the saints at Smyrna, “and I will give thee a crown of life” …There is no one great thing that man can do and then do no more and obtain salvation. After entering into the kingdom of God, in the manner already pointed out in these pages, it is by learning “precept upon precept; line upon line; here a little and there a little,” that salvation will be made secure. It is by resisting temptation today, overcoming a weakness tomorrow, forsaking evil associations the next day, and thus day by day, month after month, year after year, pruning, restraining and weeding out that which is evil in the disposition, that the character is purged of its imperfections. Salvation is a matter of character-building under the Gospel laws and ordinances, and more especially with the direct aid of the Holy Spirit.
