The PyroManiacs devote some space each weekend to highlights from The Spurgeon Archive. What follows is brief, but it's one of Spurgeon's most famous quotations. It comes from "The Wailing of Risca," a sermon preached Sunday Morning, 9 December 1860, at Exeter Hall, London.
h my brothers and sisters in Christ, if sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our bodies. And if they will perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees, imploring them to stay, and not madly to destroy themselves. If hell must be filled, at least let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go there unwarned and unprayed for.
