The PyroManiacs devote some space each weekend to highlights from The Spurgeon Archive. The following excerpt is from "Unto You, Young Men," a sermon on 1 John 2:14, preached Wednesday evening, May 13th, 1868, at Westminster Chapel, London.
here are some who would think it far worse to be considered unfashionable than to be thought unchristian.

"Faithful among the faithless found."
