I was reading (in my spare time - LOL) a book this morning and read the Biography.
Spurgeon, Charles H.. The Golden Alphabet (Updated, Annotated): An Exposition of Psalm 119 (p. 271). Aneko Press. Kindle Edition
I thought that I would share this with our Lighthouse Bible Church Members and all who may come across this Blog. It seems to me that we at Lighthouse agree with Charles and do not care about the others who were not happy about his preaching. Read for yourself!
Charles Spurgeon was a friend of all Christians, but he stood firmly on the Scriptures, and it didn’t please all who heard him. Spurgeon believed in and preached on the sovereignty of God, heaven and hell, repentance, revival, holiness, salvation through Jesus Christ alone, and the infallibility and necessity of the Word of God. He spoke against worldliness and hypocrisy among Christians, and against Roman Catholicism, ritualism, and modernism.
One of the biggest controversies in his life was known as the “Down-Grade Controversy.” Charles Spurgeon believed that some pastors of his time were “down-grading” the faith by compromising with the world or the new ideas of the age. He said that some pastors were denying the inspiration of the Bible, salvation by faith alone, and the truth of the Bible in other areas, such as creation. Many pastors who believed what Spurgeon condemned were not happy about this, and Spurgeon eventually resigned from the Baptist Union.
