The need of decision for the truth Spurgeon

Charles Spurgeon. The Need of Decision for the Truth. Scriptura Press, December 11th 2015. 23 pp.

This was originally a chapter in Charles Spurgeon’s classic, Lectures to My Students.  Although it was originally preached and written in the 1800s the content of The Need of Decision for the Truth is relevant even for the twentieth-first century.  In the beginning of the book Spurgeon talks about how people in his “present age” seem to think “Some things are either true or false, according to the point of view from which you look at them.  Black is white, and white is black according to circumstances; and it does not particularly matter which you call it.”  I was amazed to read these words in the book’s opening paragraph for that describes our time so accurately as well!  It reminded me that the attack on truth is nothing new, and truly the Bible is right when Ecclesiastes says that there is nothing new under the sun.  The rest of the book is focused on the importance of truth and the manner of Christian truth-bearing.

Here’s the three documentary in chronological order.
