How common, how fashionable is this lukewarm religion! This is the prevailing epidemical sin of our age and country... We have thousands of Christians, such as they are; as many Christians as white men; but, alas! They are generally of the Laodicean stamp; they are neither hot nor cold. But it is our first concern to know how it is with ourselves; therefore, let this inquiry go round this congregation: Are you not such lukewarm Christians? Is there any fire and life in your devotions? Or are not all your active powers engrossed by other pursuits?
~Samuel Davies

Interesting that this was penned in the mid-1700's... still applicable today.
