A quote by Arthur Pink (1886–1952). 

"...of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off." [Hosea 8:4 ]

Sad indeed is the above passage--and the more so, because we have seen such a tragic repetition of it in our own days. 

Oh what earthly-mindedness, what indulging of the flesh, what sinful extravagance--are now seen among professing Christians today!

  • How practical godliness has waned; 
  • how the denying of self has disappeared; 
  • how covetousness, pleasure and worldliness now possess the great majority of those calling themselves the people of God. 

Yet as great as the sin of the people is--far greater is that of most of the preachers, who, instead of warning, admonishing, rebuking, and setting before their people an example of sobriety and contentment--criminally remain silent upon the crying sins of their hearers, while they themselves encourage the reckless indulgence of worldly lusts.
