A Stern Warning Against Neglecting Christian Duties (Paul Dowling Of Whiteabbey Congregational)
The Christian life does not end at conversion, it begins there. Christians have duties, which are clearly prescribed in the New Testament by Christ himself, verified by the Holy Spirit speaking through the Apostles, and confirmed by the Old Testament prophets. In strength and truth, Paul Dowling gives a clear, stern, and doctrinally precise sermon, expressing his passion for the pure word of God, in Ephesians 5:1-8, "Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light."
