On Calvinism (eBook)

by C. H. Spurgeon

Available in ePub and .mobi formats

On Calvinism is the title I have selected for a series of Spurgeon's writings and sermons I have aggregated which address the Doctrines of Grace and related themes. All of these resources are freely available in the public domain - now available in eBook format(s) for easy access. Spurgeon is excellent in his exposition and so I think you will be greatly edified by the compilation.

“The old truth that Calvin preached, that Augustine preached, that Paul preached, is the truth that I must preach to-day, or else be false to my conscience and my God. I cannot shape the truth; I know of no such thing as paring off the rough edges of a doctrine. John Knox's gospel is my gospel. That which thundered through Scotland must thunder through England again.”C. H. Spurgeon

IT is a great thing to begin the Christian life by believing good solid Doctrine. Some people have received 20 different “gospels” in as many years. How many more they will accept before they get to their journey’s end, it would be difficult to predict. I thank God that He early taught me the Gospel, and I have been so perfectly satisfied with it, that I do not want to know any other. Constant change of creed is sure loss; if a tree has to be taken up two or three times a year, you will not need to build a very large loft in which to store the apples! When people are always shifting their doctrinal principles, they are not likely to bring forth much fruit to the Glory of God. It is good for young Believers to begin with a firm hold upon those great fundamental Doctrines which the Lord has taught in His Word; why if I believed what some preach about the temporary, trumpery salvation which only lasts for a time, I would scarcely be at all grateful for it; but when I know that those whom God saves, He saves with an everlasting salvation; when I know that He gives to them an everlasting righteousness; when I know that He settles them on an everlasting foundation of everlasting love, and that He will bring them to His everlasting Kingdom—oh, then I do wonder, and I am astonished that such a blessing as this should ever have been given to me!—
