Take heed of all occasions of idolatry, for idolatry is devil-worship. Psalm 106: 37. If you search through the whole Bible, there is not one sin that God has more followed with plagues than idolatry. The Jews have a saying, that in every evil that befalls them, there is uncia aurei vituli, an ounce of the golden calf in it. Hell is a place for idolaters. 'For without are idolaters.' Rev 22: 15. Senesius calls the devil a rejoicer at idols, because the image-worshippers help to fill hell. - Thomas Watson, The Ten Commandments (emphases added), on the Puritan Hard Drive
"And if they will perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees, imploring them to stop, and not madly to destroy themselves.

His preaching was fitted for the frontier lifestyle of the wilderness of KY in those days. This sermon is an example of his wit and the warning at the end is a powerful reminder that the end of the wicked is terrible.
