Excerpt from The Numbering of Days: A Sermon Preached in the Cathedral Church of Christ in Oxford, on the Morning of the Second Sunday in Lent, 1883
Society is become corrupt; the light that is in it is become darkness; the leaven that leavens it is not the Divine leaven of the Gospel, but that of worldliness, selfishness, sensuality, andﬂwiokedness therefore all these miseries - the necessary fruits of sine - come upon it. The, Gospel is called the light of the world, the salt that is to keep it from corruption, the leaven that is to leaven all man's life, and how awfully does history and the course of the Divine judgements show that it is so indeed; for it in any nation that light is put under a bushel, or is not set on a sufficient t' candlestick so that all who come in may see it, then more arid more do if the light that is in it.
