Judgment-procuring sins of churches and professors, in the approach of a calamitous season, which are reduced in Scripture to these four heads:

• Lukewarmness, which was the judgment-procuring sin of Laodicea.

• Contenting ourselves in outward order and freedom from scandal; which was the judgment-procuring sin of Sardis, and will prove ruinous to the best churches in the world.

• Want of love among ourselves, and division in churches.

• Earthly-mindedness, and love of the world, and conformity to it, that is found among the generality of professors.
