…and I Quote…

One of the many reasons why Charles Spurgeon was pimp:

“There is no Gospel at all if Christ be not God.  It is no news to me to tell me that a great prophet is born.  There have been great prophets before; but the world has never been redeemed from evil by mere testimony to the truth, and it never will be.  But tell me that God is born, that God Himself has espoused our nature, and taken it into union with Himself, then the bells of my heart ring merry peals, for now may I come to God since God has come to me.”

Charles Spurgeon (quoted in Rejesus by Michael Frost & Alan Hirsch)
