(Luke 15:10) If, for as long as this site exists, just one sinner is led to repentance and belief in Christ with the aid of the material presented here, the purpose of this site has been served.

      Someone Murdered My Brother.

      Wednesday, March 14, 2007

      Spurgeon said one day, "Some of you love the world so much..."

      He said, "I have a brother. Suppose someone came and killed my brother, stabbed him with a knife, and I was going down the street and somebody said, "You see the man over there? That's the man who killed your brother."
      I then go up to him and say, "Excuse me, are you the man who killed my brother?"
      "Yes."
      "Do you have the knife with you?"
      "Yes, it's here."
      He pulls out a huge knife and says, "I killed him. I stabbed him so many times with this."
      If you saw me handling that knife that was bloody, and you knew he had murdered my brother, wouldn't you think that I'm a false man or a wrong man to make friendship with a man who had murdered my brother?"

      Well, the LORD says, "Friendship with the world is enmity against God." (James 4:4)

      You can't be friendly with this world. If the world can accept us, there's something wrong with us, and it's going to get more and more difficult.

      These young fellows (from earlier) are blazing mad. They couldn't go see this lunatic dance and shout and sing, and so they are threatening to kill the pastor. They're threatening to bomb the church. They're threatening to do all kinds of things...

      Well, what do you expect? I've asked you many times: Why do you expect better treatment from the world than what Jesus got?

      Good Lord...
