C.H. Spurgeon close up.

Description: Unlike evangelistic preachers who fall into the trap of Arminianism, Spurgeon is clear that only the sovereign grace of God can truly bring a soul to faith in Christ. Yet, at the same time, he makes memorable use of the full range of motivations to call these souls to decision, e.g., the inevitability of death, the brevity and unpredictability of life, the return of Christ. How much this is like the wise father who tells both biological and spiritual children, “Do not boast about tomorrow, For you do not know what a day may bring forth” (Prov. 27:1); and how well this conforms to the apostolic model of an urgent messenger imbued with the truth that “we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad,” and as a ministerial outflow can say, “Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men” (2 Cor. 5:10 ff.). Reformed ministers today who rightly stand against the manipulative techniques of evangelism based on flawed and erroneous views of the human will should ask themselves if, in throwing out the dirty bath water of Arminianism, they have also thrown out the baby of genuine biblical urgency in pleading with the lost. Spurgeon surely did not!
