Our Never-Changing Rock

Growing older, the more grateful I’ve become for the truth that, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Heb. 13:8).   The Eternal Friend It is well that there is one who is ever the same and who is ever with us. It is well that there is one stable rock amidst […]

Justification and Sanctification

and by him every one that believeth is justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses (Acts 13: 39) The believer in Christ receives a present justification. Faith does not produce this fruit by-and-by, but now. So far as justification is the result of faith, it is given to the […]

“At the Last”

A sermon (No. 667) delivered on Sunday morning, December 31, 1865 at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, Newington, by C. H. Spurgeon. And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed, And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof. Proverbs 5:11-12 “at the last…”  The wise man saw the […]

The Haughty Heart

“Before destruction the heart of man is haughty.” Proverbs 18:12 It is an old and common saying, that “coming events cast their shadows before them;” the wise man teaches us that a haughty heart is the prophetic prelude of evil. Pride is as safely the sign of destruction as the change of mercury in the weather-glass […]

“This is a day of strife…”

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord” WE live in very singular times just now. The professing Church has been flattering itself that, notwithstanding all our divisions with regard to Doctrine, we […]

C. H. Spurgeon: Depend On The Holy Spirit

 Evermore, in beginning, in continuing, and in ending any and every good work, consciously and in very truth depend upon the Holy Ghost. Even a sense of your need of Him he must give you; and the prayers with which you entreat Him to come must come from Him. You are engaged in a work […]

C. H. Spurgeon: False Professors Solemnly Warned

Delivered on Sabbath Evening, August 24, 1856, by the Rev. C. H. Spurgeon At Exeter Hall, Strand “For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory […]

Tossed About Because of the Heresies and False Doctrines

Recently, ‘tossed about’ could be said to fit my own general mood. Or perhaps over-loaded is a better descriptive term. The author of all deception has his sights set on accomplishing one of two things; either trapping the saints within the tangled web of false doctrines and heretic beliefs, or wearing us out by the […]

“Am I My Brother’s Keeper?”

Cain displayed a shameful tone of presumptuous impudence in his insulting reply to the Lord God. If it had not been on record in the page of inspiration, we might almost have doubted whether a man could speak so impudently when actually conscious that God himself was addressing him. Men blaspheme often in a most […]

A Simple Test for Distinguishing Heresy from Sound Doctrine

PyroManiacs: Your weekly dose of Spurgeon It is a remarkable fact that all the heresies which have arisen in the Christian Church have had a decided tendency to dishonor God and to flatter man. They have always had for their covert, if not for their open aim, the exaltation of human nature, and the casting […]

Thoughts from Spurgeon on the New Year

Excerpts from Sermon for the New Year delivered on Thursday Evening, January 1st, 1885, by C. H. Spurgeon, At the Metropolitan Tabernacle, Newington; “And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.”—Revelation 21:5. HOW PLEASED WE ARE with that which is new! Our children’s eyes sparkle when we talk of […]

The Times Are Out of Joint

We are getting into the condition into which Germany fell not long ago. To this day, when talking with a German who is about joining our church, I usually find that he has lived in a country town. The devout German villager still attends public worship, but in the large towns a practical atheism is […]

Is there a New Gospel for each Century?

Two thumbs up! I hope all who come here will take the time to read this. Written by Spurgeon in 1888, I think you’ll agree it could have been written this day–this very hour. Pyromaniacs, Do men really believe that there is a gospel for each century? Or a religion for each fifty years? Will […]

“Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech..”

“Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar! My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace. I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.” – Psalm 120:5-7 Woe is me, that sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of […]

Life from the Dead

“And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins.”—Ephesians 2:1 OUR TRANSLATORS, as you observe, have put in the words “hath he quickened”, because Paul had thrown the sense a little farther on, and it was possible for the reader not to catch it. The have but anticipated the statement of the […]

New Doctrine

“I know the proud flesh wants to serve Christ, by striking out new paths. Proud man has a desire to preach new doctrine, to set up a new Church; to be an original thinker, to judge, and consider, and do anything but obey. This is no service to Christ.  He that would serve Christ must […]

Spurgeon on Apostasy

When coming upon this tonight I thought of a comment I’d read lately concerning the falling away–the apostasy: “If you can’t see it, you’re in it” Reading that made me think once again of how the Spirit of God showed me years ago how the apostasy, leading up to the return of Jesus, would be […]

Human Inability

“They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God..” Ephesians 4:18a “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him.” John 6:44 Coming to Christ” is a very common phrase in Holy Scripture. It is used to express those acts of the soul wherein, leaving […]

How to Ward Off the Hornets of Heresy

One says to me; “Are you not perplexed about the prevalence of modern thought—the new phase of divinity that has come up of late, and the general progress that is being made towards a new theology? Does it not trouble you?” Not a bit. Modern ideas do not affect me in the slightest. I must […]

“New” Theology

A GREAT inventor is to make bread without flour, and he is preparing the plan of a house which is to have no foundations. Wonderful! Isn’t it? We are no longer to eat grapes as they come from the vines—they are so old-fashioned: we are to have them after they have been squeezed in a […]

Darby Brethrenism by C.H. Spurgeon

What a find! Especially if you’re a fan of Spurgeon’s writings. In this he writes concerning what he refers to as ‘Darbyism‘ and the influence which the teachings and doctrines of John Nelson Darby were having upon the Church. Its very interesting. From; The Nicene Council: Darby Brethrenism (Plymouth) Author: Charles Haddon Spurgeon (June 1869 […]

The Better Way: Blessed are they which do Hunger and Thirst..

“And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: And he opened his mouth, and taught them saying, Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled“ Matthew 5: 1-2,6 *** This is a unique blessing.
