SERMON BY CHARLES FINNEY
"Have ye your heart yet hardened?"--Mark 8: 17
Christ had just wrought the miracle of feeding the four thousand men with seven loaves. In teaching his disciples shortly after, he warned them to "beware of the leaven of the Pharisees." They did not understand him, and supposed that he gave them the warning, because they had forgotten to take bread with them. Perceiving their blindness, he said:--"Why reason ye because ye have no bread? Perceive ye not yet, neither understand ? Have ye your heart yet hardened? Having eyes see ye not? and having care hear ye not? and do ye not remember?"
In speaking from these verses I inquire,
I. What is hardness of heart?
