Note to Followers of Spurgeon on War

You who follow do not receive many notices as this is more of a resource page of key quotes from Spurgeon on War And Christians, rather than a blog of regular postings.  Farming makes it hard for me to look for opportunities to share this blog during the summer and fall.  For those who care about this topic, your help is needed in keeping this alive.

Thank you to all who are able to help. Blessings in our Lord Jesus Christ.

[For opportunities to share: search key words on facebook and twitter, such as #Spurgeon, #Christiansoldiers #evangelicals #pacifism #war #Gospel …and then look for posts where this bears on the conversation, or, in the case of Spurgeon fans, directs them to these little known quotes. On facebook, many Christian organizations are open for comments. ]

Other reviews on Amazon Kindle Books

[Originally published by Friends United Press (currently out of print, ebook ony, link/s above, some used print version copies can be found).  This is my personal testimony to the change wrought in my life when I began to examine it as I struggled to align my path with that narrow way charted by Scripture.   Aside from the obvious teachings of Jesus, there were many surprises in the Old Testament.

This book gives an overview of my journey and those Scriptures that confronted me. For an academic work on Scripture and war,  see Dr. Preston Sprinkle’s new book, Fight, published by David C. Cook, and the classic, Yahweh is a Warrior by Mennonite scholar Millard Lind. ]

To believe the promise of Jesus that his followers shall possess the earth, and at the same time to face our enemies unarmed and defenseless, preferring to incur injustice rather than to do wrong ourselves, is indeed a narrow way. – Dietrich Bomhoeffer (The Cost of Discipleship)

Jesus’ kingship is not something that remains in the future. Christ is King right this minute. —R.C. Sproul
