Charles Spurgeon & the Down-Grade Controversy

For the fifth session, Brett Davisson of Emmanuel Bible Church gave an historical example of discernment in action.  Charles Spurgeon, known as “The Prince of Preachers”, was not a man of his time.  As churches in the late 19th century worked to “soften” the gospel message to attract more people, Spurgeon was one of the few to recognize the eternal importance of what was happening.  He was ridiculed as old fashioned and divisive at the time, but history has shown his warnings to be all too true.
