mmm… Smoky and Smooth!

My mystery reader from Philip Morris Information Services, New York, United States was back again today… And when I checked the logs, I saw that someone had reached my blog via a search for “Phillip Morris blog”. Does Big Tobacco monitor our blogs? Seems so! Boy, I sure could go for a smooth Phillip Morris[…]

Spurgeon and a generous attitude

love this… “Even in the Christian Church we have great diversities of opinion as to what is the true form of worship. One stoutly cries, “Lo here,” and another as earnestly says, “Lo there!” There are some who think that the more simple and plain the outward worship can be, the better; others think the[…]

“In questions of this sort there are two things to be observed. First, that the truth of the Scriptures be inviolably maintained. Secondly, since Scripture doth admit of diverse interpretations, that no one cling to any particular exposition with such pertinacity that, if what he supposed to be the teaching of Scripture should afterward turn[…]
