Spurgeon Said It Best

While reading the lastest offering of Charles Spurgeon at Pyromaniacs. I was struck by how much it resonated with my own feelings and experiences.

"This generation has made a god of its own. The effeminate deity of the modern school is no more the true God than Dagon or Baal. I know him not, neither do I reverence him. But Jehovah is the true God: he is the God of love, but he is also robed in justice; he is the God of forgiveness, but he is also the God of atonement; he is the God of heaven, but he is also the God who sends the wicked down to hell. We, of course, are thought to be harsh, and narrow-minded, and bigoted: nevertheless, this God is our God for ever and ever. There has been no change in Jehovah. He has revealed himself more clearly in Christ Jesus; but he is the same God as in the Old Testament, and as such we worship him" (emphasis mine).

Mind you, this was preached in 1885.

Spurgeon does have a way with words.
