Let the WORD of GOD Defend Himself!

C. H. Spurgeon (1834-92)

From a sermon titled, “The Lover of God’s Law Filled with Peace”:

„The Word of God can take care of itself, and will do so if we preach it, and cease defending it.

See you that lion. They have caged him for his preservation; shut him up behind iron bars to secure him from his foes! 

See how a band of armed men have gathered together to protect the lion. What a clatter they make with their swords and spears!  These mighty men are intent upon defending a lion.

O fools, and slow of heart!  Open that door! Let the lord of the forest come forth free. 

Who will dare to encounter him? What does he want with your guardian care? Let the pure gospel go forth in all its lion-like majesty, and it will soon clear its own way and ease itself of its adversaries.“
