Spurgeon, Charles

The following statements by Charles Haddon Spurgeon show how little has changed:

We are only at the beginning of an era of mingled unbelief and fanaticism. The hurricane is coming. Men have ceased to be guided by the word, and claim to be themselves prophets. (Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit, 29:214)

The new religion [the belief that the Bible is not entirely, but contains, God’s Word] practically sets “thought” above revelation, and constitutes man the supreme judge of what ought to be true. (The Sword and the Trowel, 1888, p. 43)

If it is left to me to discriminate and to judge how much of this Book is true, and how much false, then I must myself become infallible or what guide have I? (MTP, 36:10)

If we doubt God’s Word about one thing, we shall have small confidence in it upon another thing. Sincere faith in God must treat all God’s Word alike; for the faith which accepts one word of God and rejects another is evidently not faith in God, but faith in our own judgment, faith in our own taste. (MTP, 36:303)
