Good Spurgeon

"It is reserved for certain Christian churches to degrade themselves by tolerating as their teachers the acknowledged and professed propounders of another gospel, and allowing the inspiration of the Bible, the deity of Christ, and the verifies of the faith, to be scoffed at to their faces on the Sabbath-day by their own paid ministers. How long ere this reproach shall be rolled away!"

By the way, that's Charles Haddon Spurgeon on my blogger user profile picture...

  1. As usual, Spurgeon hits the nail squarely on the head.

    You don't look like him Steve, even with the beard! ;)

  2. Oh so very true, and the same could be said about some people in other paid positions of leadership in the church today.

  3. Scribe, I'm trying! Give me a break.

    I'm reading now about Jacob's "hoary head" in Gen 44:18ff - reminds me of the Spurgeon picture...

  4. I was giving you a compliment, Steve. Spurgeon was, let us be charitable, rotund. You look fit in your photo! At least more so than I do...

  5. Oh, I see. The pointis to SOUND like him, rather than eat and smoke like him. Makes sense to me...

  6. Steve - if you start eating and smoking (or even looking!) like Spurgeon, the frau will take issue. Or join you in the eating/smoking!
