The PyroManiacs devote some space each weekend to highlights from The Spurgeon Archive. The following excerpt is from "The Bible Tried and Proved," originally preached on Sunday morning, May 5th, 1889, at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, London.
e greatly need readers for the Bible. I grieve that even to some who bear the Christian name, Holy Scripture is the least read book in their library. One said of a preacher, the other day, "How does he keep up the congregation? Does he always give the people something new?"
"Yes," said the other, "he gives them the gospel; and in these days, that is the newest thing out."
It is truly so; the old, old gospel is always new. The modern doctrine is only new in name; it is, after all, nothing but a hash of stale heresies and mouldy speculations.
