Father Taylor preaching on Moses "choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season," dwelt largely on the last point first — the pleasures of sin. He said, "Sinners, you have your fine horses and farms and houses; but it is for a season. You delight in your ruffled bosoms and gay apparel and gilt ornaments; but it is — for a season. You indulge in your unholy appetites and passions, running riot in pleasurable sin; but it is — for a season — for a season!" Having rung these solemn changes for some time, until the audience was greatly affected, he turned to the Christian side of the parallel — suffering affliction with the people of God. "You are despised of your rich and sinful neighbours; but it is for a season. You are hated and persecuted for righteousness' sake; but it is — for a season. You are cast out as evil, and trodden under foot of men; it is only for a season — for a season!"
