"Methinks it cannot but seem strange that poor sinners should not at the least stir themselves up to inquire [further having once heard the gospel of Jesus Christ]...Doth he not bring a double destruction upon himself, - first of deserving death by his crimes, and then by refusing the honest and good way of delivery tendered unto him?...Certainly, if you have any care of your eternal estate, if you have any drop of tender blood running in your veins towards your own souls, if you have any rational considerations dwelling in your minds, if all be not defaced and obliterated through the power of lust and love of sin, you cannot but take yourselves to be unspeakably concerned in this proposal."
