Spurgeon on ‘Apostles of Unbelief’ February 19, 2007

Posted by larrylaz in Quotes.


Michelle and I are out for a visit to the doctor and, Lord willing, another opportunity to hear our baby’s beating heart! So I will forgo my post on the Old Testament saint I’d most like to meet in heaven until tomorrow. But I did want to post this quote from Charles Spurgeon that I came across today:

Find if you can, beloved, one occasion in which Jesus inculcated doubt or bade men dwell in uncertainty. The apostles of unbelief are everywhere today, and they imagine they are doing God service by spreading what they call “honest doubt.” This is death to all joy! Poison to all peace!

The Savior did not so. He would have them take extraordinary measures to get rid of their doubt. Jesus appeals tenderly saying, “O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?” (Matthew 14:31) He would have you believe in the substantial reality of His religion, and handle Him and see; trust Him largely and simply, as a child trusts its mother and knows no fear.”

I believe what Spurgeon called honest doubt, we would today call ’emergent’. Satan has no new tricks to play; they are the same tricks he has been playing for thousands of years, just going by different names.
