Thankful for honest preaching. It is almost inconceivable that sermons like this go without comments. Having just finished the book, Fundamentalist Seduction, I would rather tremble at good warning on the 7th commandment than become hardened at this point. A former pastor I knew preached the most powerful sermon I ever heard on this subject, then plunged headlong into this sin. I kept his copy of John Owen's "Sin and Temptation" when I sold his library after he left the ministry. I kept it as a warning to me. His notes were in the margin. The man who preached at my wedding defected from the faith because of adultery. As Alleine wrote, "(An Alarm to the Unconverted) "oh be scrupulously careful here, your soul depends upon." false converts desire salvation from sufferingâ€”but they do not desire to be saved from sinning. They would have their souls savedâ€”but still would have their lusts. They would be content to have some of their sins destroyedâ€”but they cannot leave the lap of Delilah, or divorce the beloved Herodias. They cannot be cruel to the right eye
or right hand." I am a mailman. I have to see inappropriate catalogs daily. I depend on sermons like this to make sure the fire is doused at all times.
