Spurgeon on Free Will

In a sermon by Charles Haddon Spurgeon posted by Phil Johnson in his Spurgeon Archive titled “Robinson Crusoe’s Text” there is an interesting section on man’s free will and how many pseudo-theologians give credit to it the glory that belongs to God alone.

Alas! even some divines will give man a little of the glory. He has a free will, has he not? Oh, that Dagon of free will! How men will worship it! The man did something towards his salvation, by virtue of which he ought to receive some measure of honor! Do you really think so? Then say as you think. But we will have it from this pulpit, and we will declare it to the whole world, that when a man reached heaven there shall not a particle of the glory be due to himself; he shall in no wise ascribe honor to his own feeble efforts; but unto God alone shall be the glory. “Give unto the Lord, O ye mighty, give unto the Lord glory and strength. Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name.”


  1. I kinda liked this post. It was sort of written in blank verse. It was a fast read, there being no words to slow me down.
