LOOKING TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP JESUS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

Jesus Only - an excerpt from The Spurgeon Archive

Jesus Only WE CANNOT TOO OFTEN or too plainly tell the seeking soul that his only hope for salvation lies in the Lord Jesus Christ. It lies in him completely, only, and alone. To save both from the guilt and the power of sin, Jesus is all-sufficient. His name is called Jesus, because "he shall save his people from their sins." "The Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins." He is exalted on high "to give repentance and remission of sins." It pleased God from of old to devise a method of salvation which should be all contained in his only-begotten Son. The Lord Jesus, for the working out of this salvation, became man, and being found in fashion as a man, became obedient to death, even the death of the cross. If another way of deliverance had been possible, the cup of bitterness would have passed from him. It stands to reason that the darling of heaven would not have died to save us if we could have been rescued at less expense. Infinite grace provided the great sacrifice; infinite love submitted to death for our sakes. How can we dream that there can be another way than the way which God has provided at such cost, and set forth in Holy Scripture so simply and so pressingly? Surely it is true that "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."

Thats a really great message and in a nutshell I think describes his whole preaching method and understanding of the whole counsel of God. Which was one of the most sound and balanced.

Bless that Man of God. I may have split a few hairs with him in areas but boy do I champion his stand on seperation. Make no mistake. HE WALKED THE TALK.

So fundemental to Biblical truth yet we see it compromised by many 'professing Christians' in an effort to be accepted into pluralistic politically correct spirit of the age.

Or Christians that belong to ecumenical denominations like the PCA who say they believe fundamental truths but walk a ecumenical path instead.

Spurgeon would have no truck with your people or any fellowship of any kind.
