Charles Spurgeon Quote

“Avoid a sugared gospel as you would shun sugar of lead. Seek that gospel which rips up and tears and cuts and wounds and hacks and even kills, for that is the gospel that makes alive again. And when you have found it, give good heed to it. Let it enter into your inmost being. As the rain soaks into the ground, so pray the Lord to let his gospel soak into your soul.”

  1. I have heard him. He would say “A different time, a different place, a different audience.”

    He forgets that the only time is eternity, the only place is in the Spirit, and the only audience is Christ Himself.


  2. Jessica,

    The unregenerate heart wants a sugar-coated cross, which should tell us who is behind these “men” who sugar-coat the gospel. Yes, it is grotesque and we must do all we can to turn people’s eyes to the real cross so the real gospel will soak into their hearts and do it’s glorious work of killing and making alive again.

    In Christ

  3. What if there was only one bridge still intact that led to safety, but to get there everyone must drive a long distance over many bumps and potholes, and through a driving rainstorm? Would the man who knew the way to the only bridge think to himself, “I know there is only one bridge still useable, but the way to it seems so hard and many won’t even believe me and they’ll still try another bridge. I’ll just direct them to the closest one, they will all like that and I’ll be popular!”

    You know what that man would be called?

    A liar.
