Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834–1892), was converted at age 15, and preached his first message in a cottage at Teversham the following year. Just four years after his conversion, Spurgeon, then only 19, was called to the New Park Street Chapel, a large congregation in London. Spurgeon both preached and wrote with deep passion for Christ. On one occasion he declared: “lf sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our bodies. And if they will perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees, imploring them to stay. If hell must be filled, at least let it be filled in the...

How does human life differ from that of the animals? There are dramatic consequences if man is simply the latest animal in the evolutionary process. Morality then becomes a mere convention. Purpose is nonsensical, for there is no Purposer. Animal existence is the highest goal we can hope for, and life has no real value. How different the Genesis account! Male and female are made in the image of God (1:26) and given dominion over the animal world to act as regents for God (1:28). Humanity has not only a material body, but a God-breathed soul (2:7). We have an aesthetic sense to enjoy creation...

At a luncheon in his honor, Billy Graham told this story: “Albert Einstein was travelling from Princeton by train when the conductor came down the aisle. Einstein reached into his vest pocket. He couldn’t find his ticket, so tried his trousers. It wasn’t there. He looked in his briefcase, but still couldn’t find it. The conductor said, “Dr. Einstein, I’m sure you bought a ticket. Don’t worry about it.” Einstein nodded appreciatively. The conductor continued down the aisle, then turned and saw the physicist on his knees looking under his seat. The conductor rushed back: “Dr. Einstein, I know...

“You rejoice with joy inexpressible” (1 Pet 1:8). “There is no need to be worried by facetious people who try to make the Christian hope of ‘Heaven’ ridiculous by saying they do not want ‘to spend eternity playing harps.’ The answer to such people is that if they cannot understand books written for grown-ups, they should not talk about them. All the scriptural imagery (harps, crowns, gold, etc.) is, of course, a mere symbolical attempt to express the inexpressible. Musical instruments are mentioned because for many people music is the thing in the present life which most strongly suggests...

“Let the saints be joyful in glory; let them sing aloud on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand” (Ps 149:5-6). “The word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Heb 4:12). “These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword” (Rev 2:12). Charles Spurgeon tells of a renowned general who, as he approached his king, stumbled over his sword. “I see,” said the king, “your...

Arthur Rendle Short, professor of surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons, was also founder of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. He wrote: “Many men have been great in a few of the attributes that make up life. There have been great teachers; but no one…rises to such a tower of perfection that we cannot find a fair criticism for so much as a single sentence in his teaching. There have been great saints, but none reaches…sinless perfection. There have been men of miraculous gifts, but they could not raise themselves from the dead. There have been men of immense discernment and insight,…but...
