FLEEING OUT OF SODOM

An edifying sermon by Jonathan Edwards.

Excerpt …

“Doctrine: Do not look back when fleeing out of Sodom!

Contents:
1. Sodom is a city of filthiness and abominations
2. Sodom is a city appointed to destruction
3. It’s destruction is exceedingly dreadful
4. It’s destruction is universal
5. It’s destruction is everlasting
6. It’s destruction is swift and sudden 
7. Nothing in Sodom is worth looking back upon 
8. Messengers from God warn us to make haste and not to look back

Application of the Doctrine 
1. Your destruction is infinitely more dreadful 
2. Your destruction is greater 
3. Multitudes were suddenly seized by wrath 
4. You will never get any farther 
5. Consider how many have fled to the mountain while you yet remain in Sodom
6. Backsliding after this will tend to seal a man’s damnation 
7. A great part of the wicked world faces some outward temporal destruction 
8. Consider your exceeding proneness to look back”
