CLOWNS IN THE PULPIT !!



THE MAN IN THE PULPIT SHOULD BE DRESSED AS A CLOWN,
BECAUSE THE SERMONS NOW PREACHED HAVE BEEN WATERED DOWN.
THEY DONT PREACH ON SIN, NOR ON THE FIERCE MIGHTY WRATH THAT IS SOON
TO BEGIN.
BUT IT HAS ALL BEEN FORETOLD IN YEARS NOW PASSED BY,
THE PROPHETS GAVE WARNINGS TO BOTH YOU AND I.
THE CHURCH HAS BECOME A PLACE OF DISASTER,
LET ME QUOTE JEREMIAH WHO LONG AGO SAID WOE BE UNTO THE PASTORS.
