How To Avoid 1000 Errors

December 1, 2009

Spurgeon on us not cloning our most admired preacher’s:

Let every man, called of God to preach the Word, be as his Maker has fashioned him….The good and the evil in men of eminence are both of them mischievous when they become objects of servile imitation;  the good when slavishly copied is exaggerated into formality, and the evil becomes wholly intolerable. If each teacher of others went himself to the school of our one only Master, a thousand errors might be avoided.  (Charles H Spurgeon, Autobiography – the Early Years, 234)

  1. But he did say Quote and learn from them.

    Great Quote Colin

    The man who never reads will never be read; he who never quotes will never be quoted. He who will not use the thoughts of other men’s brains, proves that he has no brains of his own. Brethren, what is true of ministers is true of all people. You need to read … Paul cries, “Bring the books” — join in the cry. — C.H. Spurgeon (Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit, Vol. 9, 1863, sermon #542, p. 668)
