Everything Is Superficial

The following is from the Life and Letters of John Angell James.

Most professing Christians are sunk deep in the mire of worldly-mindedness. Mammon is the wicked and shameful idol of the church. Our churches are, in my opinion, far from a state of sound healthy piety. We have but little of what constitutes the essence of experimental religion.

Everything is superficial. Our repentance, our faith, our love, our devotional habits--are all superficial!

The world has . . .
engrossed men's minds,
absorbed their feelings,
starved their piety.
