Vincent Alsop - Intoxicated with Novelties

Not open for further replies.


Puritan Board Graduate
Stated in a Sermon on Zephaniah 1:8 by English Non-Conformist Minister Vincent Alsop (1630-1703):

That the present generation is lamentably intoxicated with novelties, and as sadly degenerated from the gravity of some former ages, can neither be denied, nor concealed, nor defended, nor, I fear, reformed. And what is more deplorable, some that wear the livery of a stricter profession, are carried away with the vanity; and even the daughters of Zion have caught the epidemical infection.

How much more so today?
