Look into the world, among rich and poor, high and low, young and
old, and see whether it appear not by the whole scope of
their conversations that they set more by something else
than Christ? And for all the proclamations of his grace in
the gospel, and our common professing ourselves to be his
disciples, and to believe the glorious things that he hath
promised us in another world, whether it yet appear not by
the deceitfulness of our service, by our heartless endeavours
to obtain his kingdom, and by our busy and delightful following
of the world, that the most who are called Christians
do yet in their hearts make light of Christ; and if so, what
wonder if they perish by their contempt?

Richard Baxter
Making Light of Christ and Salvation
