Spurgeon On Amusement in the Church
In the 1800's Charles Spurgeon fought what he dubbed the Down-Grade of the church in Europe. In this excerpt and reading of a Spurgeon sermon (beware of the monotone voice), the Prince of Preachers speaks candidly about the role of amusement in the church. I often find it amazing that history has so often dealt with the contemporary problems in the church. Much of what is going on in the name of "emergent," "seeker-sensitive," "purpose-driven," etc. etc. has actually been around a long time though in different forms. There truly is "nothing new under the sun."
