Sound Preaching

“The old truth that Calvin preached, that Chrysostom preached, that Paul preached, is the truth I must preach today, or else I would be a liar to my conscience and my God. I cannot shape the truth. I know of no such thing as shaving off the rough edges of a doctrine. John Knox’s gospel is my gospel. That which thundered through Scotland must thunder through England again. The great majority of our ministers are sound enough in the faith, but not sound enough in the way they preach it.”

—Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)

  1. “The great majority of our ministers are sound enough in the faith, but not sound enough in the way they preach it.”

    I don’t think Spurgeon would be able to say that of the men who occupy many of the pulpits today in America. But, I hear his hearts cry and join him. May God raise up a generation of men to preach the pure Gospel of Jesus Christ.
