Spurgeon: If God Approves, Let Men Condemn (via Desiring God)

Spurgeon can teach us to handle controversy manfully and without compromising. His convictions, which he held to his dying day, cost him dearly. He did not practice that vice he so clearly preached against: “I think there is scarcely a Christian man or woman that has been able to go all the way to heaven and yet quietly hide himself and run from bush to bush, skulking into glory. Christianity and cowardice? What a contradiction in terms!”

Greg Morse has written an excellent article for Desiring God detailing timely conclusions about faithful Christian living and ministry from the work of Charles Spurgeon.

Give it a read here.

In this post, non-SBC author Hohn Cho writes, “it is at best disconcerting when certain people point their fingers at me, and others like me, and claim that we owe them something, when to the best of my knowledge and recollection, I owe nothing to these folks.

The Law Of Merited Impossibility (Rod Dreher)

In this article, non-SBC author Rod Dreher explains, “The Law Of Merited Impossibility is an epistemological construct governing the paradoxical way overclass opinion makers frame the discourse about the clash between religious liberty and gay civil rights. It is best summed up by the phrase, ‘It’s a complete absurdity to believe that Christians will suffer a single thing from the expansion of gay rights, and boy, do they deserve what they’re going to get.'”
