Klappentext

Excerpt from Sermons, Vol. 18: Preached in 1887

Sin, for it is all holy ground between the two places but he is wisest who does not ramble even there, but keeps to Calvary, and is content to speak only of Jesus crucified.

God forbid, said one who was a great and a wise man - God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. Paul would have considered it a terrible calamity if he had become fascinated, or even in uenced, by the speculations of the cultured men of his period: he felt that the atoning sacrifice deserved all his admiration, and he had none to Spare for anything else.

You know how he fell among certain wise people who were fond of philosophical disquisitions; and to them he said, I determined not to know anything among you save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. Lie did not endeavor to please his audience by agreeing with them, but the further they went in one direction, the further he went in the other, the more surely to counteract their error. Because they were so broad he would narrow himself to the one theme of the cross. In these times, when the world has run mad upon its idols of human thought, it may be wise to be more strict than ever, and to stand steadfast in Paul's determination I determined not to know anything among you save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
