Flee the wrath to come
It is surely time to get serious, says Philip Wren, before the wrath that is surely to come soon.
“As I walked through the wilderness of this world, I lighted on a certain place where was a den, and laid me down in that place to sleep; and as I slept, I dreamed a dream. I dreamed, and behold, I saw a man clothed with rags, standing in a certain place, with his face from his own house, a book in his hand, and a great burden upon his back. I looked and saw him open the book, and read therein; and as he read, he wept and trembled; and not being able longer to contain, he brake out with a lamentable cry, saying, “What shall I do?””
And so begins one of the most inspired books outside the Bible. John Bunyan’s, The Pilgrim’s Progress is an outstanding work of literature. It is also a repository of Christian truth.
