Uncompromising

shieldswordsm.jpgCharles Haddon Spurgeon, the “Prince of Preachers,” was not very big on sacrificing truth for unity. In fact, when it came to God’s Word, he was quite uncompromising (a word which, today, has decidedly negative connotations but in Spurgeon’s day was quite complimentary). He did not shy away from preaching “hard” doctrines nor did he attempt to ease the cutting bite of the Word’s sharper edges. This week’s dose of Spurgeon over at Pyromaniacs demonstrates this well. Would that God would raise up more preachers like Spurgeon who are unafraid to preach the whole of God’s Word and unapologetic for the truths contained therein.
