Truth is no Trifle!

C.H. Spurgeon:

ChancelWindowTruth“I dread much the spirit which would tamper with Truth for the sake of united action, or for any other object under heaven the latitudinarian spirit which sneers at creeds and dogmas. TRUTH IS NO TRIFLE! Not so thought our fathers, when at the stake they gave themselves to death, or on the brown heather of Scotland fell beneath the swords of Claverhouse’s Dragoons for truth which men nowadays count unimportant, but which being truths were to them so vital that they would sooner DIE than suffer them to be dishonoured.

O for the same uncompromising love of truth! ….. I pray God evermore to preserve us from unity in which the truth shall be considered valueless, in which principle gives place to policy, in which the noble and masculine virtues which adorn the Christian hero are to be supplemented by an effeminate affection of charity. May the Lord deliver us from indifference to His word and will … may God perpetually send some prophet who shall cry aloud to the world, ‘Your covenant with death shall be disannulled, your agreement with Hell shall not stand’. May there ever be found some men though they be rough as Amos, or stern as Haggai, who shall denounce again and again all league with error and all compromise with sin, and declare that these are the abhorrence of God … The destruction of every sort of union which is not based on TRUTH, is a preliminary to the edification of the unity of the Spirit.”
