A sermon on 1 Corinthians 10:12: "Let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall." The character and danger of the presumptuous is shown and special counsel given.
"Come with me to the foot of the mountain of presumption. See there the maimed and writhing forms of many who once soared with Icarian wings in the airy regions of self-confidence; yet there they lie with their bones broken, and their peace destroyed. There lies one who had immortal life within him; see how full of pain he appears, and he looks a mass of helpless matter. He is alive, it is true, but just alive." — from the third section.
