“We and our countrymen are sinners, aggravated sinners! God proclaims that we are such…” Ouch!
“When disaster comes to a city—has not the LORD caused it?” Amos 3:6
It concerns us all to seriously reflect upon our own sins, and the sins of our land—which have brought these calamities upon us.
We and our countrymen are sinners, aggravated sinners! God proclaims that we are such—by His judgments now upon us: by withering fields and scanty harvests, by the sound of the trumpet and the alarm of war!
O my country, is not your wickedness great, and your iniquities infinite? Where is there a more sinful spot to be found upon our guilty globe? Pass over the land, take a survey of the inhabitants, inspect into their conduct—and what do you see? What do you hear?
You see the gigantic forms of vice bidding defiance to the God of heaven—while true religion and virtue are forced to retire, to avoid public contempt and insult!
