Hellish sin! Stupendous wickedness! Monstrous impiety!

(Thomas Doolittle, "Love to Christ Necessary to Escape the Curse at His Coming!" 1693)

"If any man does not love the Lord Jesus Christ — he shall be accursed!" 1 Corinthians 16:22

What! not love the Lord! Hellish sin!

What! not love Jesus! Stupendous wickedness!

What! not love Christ! Monstrous impiety!

Not love Him who is both Lord, and Jesus, and Christ! What name might we call him by?
Is he a man — or a beast?
Is he a man — or a devil?

Do you love the world — and not Him? Do you love sin — and not him? This may be . . .
  the astonishment of the heavens,
  the amazement of the earth,
  the wonder of angels,
  the joy of devils,
  the burden of the creation of God.
The earth groans to bear them;
the sun is grieved to give light unto them;
the air laments to be sucked into sin-filthy bodies, wherein are more filthy souls — because they are void of the love of Christ! Yes, all this world looks more like Hell than Heaven, because of the swarms of men therein who have no sincere love to Jesus Christ.

Let all who are not sensual beasts, or incarnate devils — who have the understanding and hearts of men — stand and wonder — that a man should deny Christ his love. Good Lord! What a thing is this! What cursed wickedness is this! What wonder that you behold such a sight as this — a man without love unto your Son — and allow him to continue to be a man; or do not make him . . .
  a sick man,
  a poor man,
  a tormented pained man on earth,
  or a damned man in Hell!

Oh what punishment waits for him! How do devils hope for his death, that they might drag him down to that hellish crew, where there is not one lover of Christ among them all!
