Darkness and Light
A Sermon on Ephesians 4:17-19
The New Life
Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds. They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart. They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity. (ESV)
An analysis of the life of the unbeliever; understanding is darkened; and hearts are hardened; the disastrous effect of the fall on the intellect of man; the darkness of the philosophers; and false boasting of the intellect; the only reason that people do not believe the Gospel; the example of William Pitt the Younger; and William Wilberforce; the necessity of prayer.
