As Christians we are called to a radical non-conformity to this age. In the prior sermon Pastor Henry sought to show that this age is marked by futility. Now he turns our attention to the fact that this age is capable of shattering the souls of many who profess Christ. We must know and must believe that this world is something we are only pilgrims in. It is not our friend, it is our mission-field. It is not our hope it is our enemy. Therefore Pastor Henry gives us fifteen reasons why this present age is deadly.
