The Hard Work of Christianity: A Reminder from C. H. Spurgeon

Working Hands

 

“Our tampering produces false theology, false ideas of Christianity, tolerates disobedience to the ordinances, and makes supposed believers impatient with calls to holiness. One may be sure, however, that Christ will not be trifled with, will not have ‘his words shuffled like a deck of cards,’ will be ‘Lord as well as Saviour [sic]’ or will not be Savior. A supposed assurance of forensic justification ‘apart from a spiritual work within the soul–a change of heart, and a renewal of mind’ does not yield a future of heaven.”

– Tom Nettles, Living By Revealed Truth: The Life and Pastoral Theology of Charles Haddon Spurgeon, 337-338.
