Notable Quote: C.H. Spurgeon and the Westminster Confession

Charles Spurgeon and the Westminster Confession on God’s sovereignty:

There is no attribute more comforting to His children than that of God’s sovereignty. Under the most aderse circumstances, in the most sever trials, they believe that sovereignty has ordained their afflictions, that sovereignty will sanctify them all. There is nothing for which the children ought to more earnestly contend to than the doctrine of their Master over all creation—– the Kingship of God over all the works of His own hands—–the Throne of God and His right to sit upon that throne . . . for it is God upon the Throne whom we trust

C.H. Spurgeon (1834 - 1892)

God from all eternity did, by the most wise and holy counsel of His own will, freely and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass; yet so, as thereby neither is God the author of sin, nor is violence offered to the will of the creatures, nor is liberty or contingency of second causes taken away, but rather established.

Westminster Confession of Faith, 3.1
