The Lord's servant The good Lord blessed Mr. Spurgeon with eloquence in his speaking. This message should be heard by every person who calls himself a pastor, and every person who calls him or herself a christian. This sermon definitely hits the target, on those persons, who dare to make a mockery of the gospel. May the Lord open their eyes, so that they may repent.
Heed the Warning! After quoting Matthew 22:5, Mr. Spurgeon states, "MAN is not much changed since the days of Adam." He preached this sermon August 17, 1856 but it is indeed another timely message that confronts us today. Let us beware of "making light of the Gospel."
Relevant Doctrine The doctrine taught, as hinted at by the sermon title, refutes the false and anti-Christian doctrine of the "Supreme Being" that was commonly taught by Unitarians and Deists which sprang up in the last 18th century (including Thomas Paine) and were the principle beliefs of America's founders (e.g. Washington, Franklin, Madison, Jefferson). Churches should mark this sharp distinguishment between true Christian doctrine and heresy and stop falsely "ascribing greatness" to America's deistic founders instead of "ascribing greatness to our God", and the doctrine of his Trinity.
Essential listening!!!! No Calvinist or Arminian should miss listening to this sermon.
The former will be confirmed in their faith. The latter will be convinced of their error.
Bless God for Mr Spurgeon.
Jesus Christ as our High Priest On the Day of Atonement the High Priest worked alone to offer up sacrifices for the nation. C. H. Spurgeon in this remarkable and powerful rendition of his sermon highlights the prophetic parallels between the High Priest's role on the Day of Atonement and Jesus Christ's role as our High Priest.
