Hellish sin! Stupendous wickedness! Monstrous impiety!

(Thomas Doolittle, "Motives to Love Jesus!")

What! Not love the Lord? Hellish sin!
What! Not love Jesus? Stupendous wickedness!
What! Not love Christ? Monstrous impiety!
What name shall we call such a person by — a man or beast?
One that does not love the Lord Jesus Christ — is he a man or a devil?

Can you love sin — and not Jesus?
Can you love the world — and not Jesus?
What cursed wickedness!
This is . . .
  the amazement of the earth,
  the astonishment of angels,
  and the joy of devils!

The earth groans to bear such as do not love Jesus.
The sun is grieved to give them light.
The air laments its vapors to be sucked into such filthy bodies, wherein are more filthy souls!

"If anyone does not love the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be accursed!" 1 Corinthians 16:22
