Fly Out of Sodom
"Your wickedness makes you as it were heavy as lead, and to tend downwards with great weight and pressure towards hell; and if God should let you go, you would immediately sink and swiftly descend and plunge into the bottomless gulf, and your healthy constitution, and your own care and prudence, and best contrivance, and all your righteousness, would have no more influence to uphold you and keep you out of hell, than a spider's web would have to stop a falling rock . . .
"Let everyone who is out of Christ, now awaken and fly from the wrath to come. The wrath of Almighty God is now undoubtedly hanging over a great number of you. Let everyone fly out of Sodom:
Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed (Genesis 19:17)."
-- Jonathan Edwards, Sinners in the Hands of An Angry God
