From the life of the Baptist pastor Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892), Iain Murray makes some key points that reformed people do well to keep in mind and heart:
- ‘1. “Genuine evangelical Christianity is never of an exclusive spirit….”
- ‘2. Spurgeon “wanted to see both divine sovereignty and human responsibility upheld, but when it came to gospel preaching he believed….”
- ‘3. “This controversy directs us to our need for profound humility before God….”
- ‘4. “The final conclusion has to be that when Calvinism ceases to be evangelistic….” ’
