The PyroManiacs devote some space each weekend to highlights from The Spurgeon Archive. The following excerpt is from "The Blood Shed for Many," a sermon preached by Spurgeon at the Metropolitan Tabernacle on Sunday morning, 3 July 1887.
ear friends, I am going to preach to you again upon the corner-stone of the gospel. How many times will this make, I wonder?
The doctrine of Christ crucified is always with me. As the Roman sentinel in Pompeii stood to his post even when the city was destroyed, so do I stand to the truth of the atonement though the Church is being buried beneath the boiling mud-showers of modern heresy. Everything else can wait, but this one truth must be proclaimed with a voice of thunder. Others may preach as they will, but as for this pulpit, it shall always resound with the substitution of Christ.
“God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Some may continually preach Christ as an example, and others may perpetually discourse upon His coming to glory: we also preach both of these, but mainly we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block, and to the Greeks foolishness; but to them that are saved Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
