Worldliness Among Professing Christians

"There is a great deal of worldliness, and earthly-mindedness, and covetousness among the professing Christians of our day. They are worshipers of the golden calf! O sirs! the world is all shadow and vanity. The world is like Jonah's gourd--a man may sit under its shadow for a time, but it soon decays and dies.

The main reason why many professors dote upon the world, is because they are not acquainted with a greater glory. If the heart of man is not filled with God--it will be filled with the world, the flesh and the devil."

--Thomas Brooks, "London's Lamentations" 1670
