Quote of the Day #134 - Charles Spurgeon


A quote from Charles Spurgeon on the universality and extent of sin:
Traverse the central parts of continents where as yet civilization has scarcely reached, and you shall find that man is still opposed to his Maker, and hates the name of the only begotten Son of God. Nor need we travel or even look abroad; the opposition is universal among ourselves, among the old, among the young.

Striking is that text, "They go astray from the womb, speaking lies." An old Puritan puts it; "They go astray before they go: they speak lies before they speak;" and so it is.
~Charles Spurgeon (North And South 1007.471)
