    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.

Charles SpurgeonCharles H. Spurgeon:

“Your Sunday schools are admirable, but what is their purpose if you do not teach the Gospel in them? You get children together and keep them quiet for an hour-and-a-half, and then send them home—but what is the good of it?” (1887, Sermon #1987)

  1. Such a true statement. So many Sunday School lessons could be improved in eternal value if they would focus more on teaching the gospel than entertaining.


  2. Gosh…what I would give for an hour and a half! Great quote, though. So many churches do entertain the young people instead of preaching the Gospel. Makes it hard to compete, so to speak.


  3. This is one of my great concerns about churches. I am especially concerned with what goes on in our youth ministries.
