    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

A Trimming of Principles

Quoting Charles H. Spurgeon:

You may go to hell as well dressed in the ‘garnishings of morality’ as in the ‘rags of immorality’. It is still the old nature – wash it, and cleanse it, and bind it, and curb it, and bridle it – it is still the old fallen nature, and cannot understand spiritual things. (“The Heart – A Den of Evil” No. 732)

  1. “…and cannot understand spiritual things.” But do believers understand spiritual things? How often do you hear “God is mysterious… we don’t understand.” Or straight from the good book: “Now we see but in part.”

    The reason that neither intellectuals nor spiritually-minded people understand it is because it doesn’t make sense. It’s illogical. And no scientist has ever needed to threaten me with a lake of fire the way that most religions do to get their point across and for it to make sense to me. That adds credibility to their argument in my mind.
