Spurgeon on Christians who Rail Against the Times

The current conspiracy theory, sky-is-falling, outrage culture can’t be reconciled with what the Bible says about living in the already of Christ’s Kingdom. Christians ought to be the last people to fall prey to doom and gloom hopeless theology, but sadly, it is thriving in contemporary evangelicalism. The problem is exacerbated by our minute-by-minute social media news cycle. The prophets of outrage, despair, and conspiracy often position themselves as courageous truth-tellers. But do not be fooled: the evangelical outrage industry is often more about building donor lists than it is about truth. Few have ever questioned the courage and theological fortitude of the prince of preachers, Charles Haddon Spurgeon. His theological convictions were out of step with most of his ministry contemporaries, and the media often vilified him. In January 1888, after fighting for the doctrinal integrity of the Baptist Union in the Downgrade Controversy, Spurgeon was publicly censured by the Union. He acknowledged, “Men cannot say anything worse of me than they have said. I have been belied from head to foot, and misrepresented to the last degree” (159). With the vicious scorn and ridicule he often faced, it would have been easy for him to adopt a bitter and skeptical perspective on life and ministry, but he did not. In addresses to students at Spurgeon’s Pastor’s College he warns them against adopting a doom and gloom perspective by constantly railing with outrage against the times. In 1872, he began his Annual Conference for these young preachers at which he customarily delivered a presidential address. The most outstanding of these addresses were reprinted after his death in the book An All-Around Ministry. These addresses brought the best out of Spurgeon and expose his pastor’s heart. They are as helpful for Christians today (if not more so in the age of social media) as they were to those who originally heard them. Make no mistake; it is the best time in human history to be a Christian. We are the privileged people “on whom the end of the ages has come” (1 Cor 10:11). Consider Spurgeon’s wise gospel counsel about railing against the times in the excerpts from An All-Around Ministry below.

We are looking forward to an even better year in 2015, I hope that you’ll continue to read and share the content we post here at Prince on Preaching. 1. The Real Proverbs 31 Mom She was a new member of the church and asked me how she could get more involved. I mentioned several things including women’s ministry and when I did her countenance changed and she said, “I just cannot take another Proverbs 31 study!” Why did she feel that way? I think it’s because we have often treated Proverbs 31 like a gospel-less job description but that is not how it functions at all in the book of Proverbs. (Continue Reading)
