A Quote From Charles Haddon Spurgeon Consider this quote from Charles Haddon Spurgeon in 1865: â€śThere is a deepseated unbelief among Christians just now, about the eternity of future punishment. It is not outspoken in many cases, but it is whispered; and it frequently assumes the shape of a spirit of benevolent desire that the doctrine may be disproved. I fear that at the bottom of all this there is a rebellion against the dread sovereignty of God. There is a suspicion that sin is not, after all, so bad a thing as we have dreamed. There is an apology, or a lurking wish to apologize for sinners, who are looked upon rather as objects of pity than as objects of indignation, and really deserving the condign punishment which they have wilfully brought upon themselves. I am afraid it is the old nature in us putting on the specious garb of charity, which thus leads us to discredit a fact which is as certain as the happiness of believersâ€ť (Sermons, 10, 6701, cited by Iain Murray, The Forgotten Spurgeon, Edinburgh: The Banner of Truth Trust, 1978 edition, p. 13).
Great Sermon! Oh how I miss the ministry of Bro. Roloff. I miss his voice, singing and his preaching from God's word. When I worked for the power company in Atlanta, Ga. I would listen to Bro. Roloff in my office on am station WGUN. When in the field performing my duties I would carry a small portable battery powered radio
and listen to Bro. Lester Roloff each and every day. What a true blessing!
Great Sermon! This message rocked my world, it validated what I had partly known when Christ first saved me. Most of the messages I heard from the beginning were man centered and this message preached in 1963 changed it all. I have listened to it hundreds of times.
How? May have been the most patient crowd and preacher Iâ€™ve witnessed. I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve ever heard a child/children make noises the entire sermon without anyone once intervening. Taught me patience just having to sit and listen. Spirit driven man, no doubts.
Great Sermon! I am one of those people Francis talked about; mouthing the words with an empty heart. I have to pray for a renewed HEART.
It bothers me that so many wonderful people from the civil rights era have become symbols of what's wrong with our collective spirit of LOVE and UNITY. It breaks my heart to witness so many of them embrace the spirit of self centeredness and greed. The false sense of importance they exhibit while showing disrespect to God by their silence is a disgrace.
Terrifying Truths Iâ€™ve always been unclear on the unpardonable sin. I thought it was always more about calling the works of the Spirit works of evil. Seems that is just a symptom or sign of such depravity. Iâ€™ve never heard the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit been made so clear. When I would ask, Jesus would say that I havenâ€™t crossed the line or come close donâ€™t worry about it. Now this is being revealed to me in due time. PNR.

Holiness is such a weird concept, but important to God, thank you for helping me see it more clearly.
Great Sermon! Wonderful site and I wanted to post a note to let you know, ""Good job""! Iâ€™m glad I found this blog. Brilliant and wonderful job ! Your blog site has presented me most of the strategies which I like. Thanks for sharing this. https://rospher.com/
Great Sermon! Many Christians don't want prayer to be answered. Many want America to have great material gain once more. Believers and unbelievers are clamoring for the same thing.
"Make America Great Again." Daniel prayed for his nation to return to the God of heaven. We must seek God's prominence.
This can only be done by the preaching of the gospel, prayer, and righteous living.
