Reading a friends blog, I came across the following quote from C.H. Spurgeon. So, lest I forget…here it is:
I long for the day when the precepts of the Christian religion shall be the rule among all classes of men, in all transactions. I often hear it said, ‘Do not bring religion into politics.’ This is precisely where it ought to be brought, and set there in the face of all men as on a candlestick. (Metro. Tabernacle, vol. 27)
This flys in the face of modern American evangelicalism which lauds a “hands off” approach to world affairs.
Also, while reading through Spurgeon’s sermons, I found the following hilarious quote:
If the little bird within our bosom sings sweetly, it is of small consequence if all the owls in the world hoot at us! – (Spurgeon volume 27 Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit. Substance of True Religion No. 1598)
