Lewis says, If anyone thinks that Christians regard unchastity (sexual sin) as the supreme vice, he is quite wrong. The sins of the flesh are bad, but they are the least bad of all sins. All the worst pleasures are purely spiritual. The pleasure of putting other people in the. Notice on this occasion - I. THE CONDUCT OF HIS ENEMIES. 1. It was brutally gross.

EXEGESIS: A CONTROVERSY: There is a controversy concerning this story—whether it was part of the Gospel of John from the beginning. Most scholars agree that the story is not Johannine in its origins and that it was added later. The question, then, is whether we should regard this story as canonical

C. H. Spurgeon. Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892), often known today as the Prince of Preachers, began his pastorate at London's New Park Street Church in 1854 at the age of twenty. Following in the Non-conformist tradition, he quickly became one of Britain's most popular preachers Distorting the Gospel: The Meaning of John 8:1-11.

On one side were those who argued that Jesus did not condemn sinners and that we should follow His example. On the other side were those who.

Charles Spurgeon tenaciously held to the doctrine of unconditional election. By necessity, this biblical truth flows from belief in human depravity.

Out of the mass of fallen humanity, God made an eternal, distinguishing choice Verses 1-8. 2 Peter 1:1.

"Jesus Is God Come Near" — John 1:14 (What Jesus Did!)

There is no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1) because they are washed, sanctified and justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 6:11) by faith in Him (Romans 3:26, 28). They stand clean before the Lord because their sins are forgiven (1 John 1:9) and the Holy Spirit has washed and regenerated them into new. Spurgeon's masterpiece on grace from Romans 4:5 is an outstanding description of God's love and unmerited grace to us. It is one of the clearest examples of salvation by grace ever written. Spurgeon's masterpiece is one the finest expositions ever penned on faith, repentance, and regeneration. 5 out of 5 stars Verses 1-18. 2 Corinthians 4:1. Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; Stern was the labour of the apostles, but they felt that their work was so all-important, so divine, that they must not grow weary of it, though they were, doubtless, often weary in it. 2 Corinthians 4:2

As John begins his gospel (1:1, 14), Jesus is the eternal Word who is God, who took on human flesh. He shared the glory of the Father, but willingly laid that aside so that He could come to bear the penalty for our sins on the cross. He is the Light of the world, absolutely pure, just as God is light (John 8:12; 1 John 1:5) Spurgeon was an important man for 19th century England. And Spurgeon remains an inspiration to faithful preachers around the world. His commitment to the truth of Scripture, the framework found in the old-paths of the doctrines of grace, and his courage to proclaim these truths serve to strengthen pastors who find themselves in an ongoing.

Christ's work for us upon the cross has already done all that is necessary to forgive us Jesus required this man -- and the woman taken in adultery (John 8:11) -- to stop sinning, to repent and to begin to live a different way. The story of the healing of the man at the Pool of Bethesda is all of grace -- he didn't deserve anything, in fact, he wasn't a very good man to start with.
