"To you, young man, are these words spoken, with a significant and impressive meaning. You, too, if unconverted, are dead, and on your way to an eternal sepulcher. Mistake us not. Alive, indeed, you may be to all that this world calls life. To the pleasures of sense, the allurements of sin, the scenes of time, the great excitements of' the day, ....And yet you are dead; your soul is "dead in trespasses and sins." You are dead to holiness, dead to spirituality, dead to all real religion, to all scriptural hope of heaven; and each throb of your pulse beats in muffled tone your soul's funeral march to eternity, there to be tormented by the ever -enduring pangs of the "second death." Unconverted - not "born again - you have no union with Christ. You are not a child of God. You are unprepared to die, and unmeet to stand, a disembodied spirit, before the judgment-seat of Christ, to answer for the deeds done in the body."
