John Chrysostom on the chains of sin

For no one of those who have not done away with their sins here, when he has departed thither shall be able to escape his account for them; but as they who are taken out of these earthly prisons are brought in their chains to the place of judgment, even so all souls, when they have gone away hence bound with the manifold chains of their sins, are led to the awful judgment-seat. — St. John Chrysostom, Homily on Matthew 4
