2 Peter 2:13-14
And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes…
1. When we think of the sins of wicked men, we should likewise think of their punishments.
(1) Because these two are in God's purpose, and their own nature knit together.
(2) Because the consideration of sin often does more hurt than God, if the consideration of the punishment be not joined unto it.
2. Profuse luxury is a sign of a man sinning securely.
3. Luxury, the more it is shown openly, the more it is to be condemned.
4. There is the greatest danger in those sins from which the greatest pleasure and delight ariseth.
(1) Because pleasure is a sign of a perfect habit.
(2) Because pleasure is very hardly left.
5. They that please themselves most in their sins, do most contaminate both themselves and others.
6. The outward members also of wicked men are full of wickedness. Because out of the abundance of the heart all our faculties, and all the instruments of operations receive impressions answerable unto the heart.
7. The uncleanness of the body is oftentimes joined with impurity of religion (ver. 14).
8. In such men covetousness is oftentimes joined with their impiety.
9. The exercising of the heart unto such sins doth very much strengthen and increase them.
10. They that are after this manner accustomed unto their sins are hardened in them.
11. Such men are most to be detested.
