Not that I have time to do a proper post, but I was reading Spurgeon’s sermon on Jacob and Esau and was appalled at the lack of Scripture usage by Spurgeon. No, what I found was a lot of Calvinist vomit, and very little in the way of actual instruction from the Scripture.
I am not surprised really. The more I read and talk to preachers and missionaries, the more I find they have “pet” verses, and “pet” books in the Scripture, and they wander very little from them.
If you wonder why “Christianity” is in the state it is in, here lieth part of the answer: Pet Scriptures.
I will comment on Spurgeon more fully later. This just couldn’t wait.
