To The Barber's 6: Sounding Spiritual

Holiness is not the way to Christ; Christ is the way to holiness.

C. H. Spurgeon said that.

It sounds very spiritual when you repeat it to someone.

But what does it mean, exactly?

Try this test. Next time you’re in church, sitting next to someone you don’t know, repeat it to them. Then, ask them to explain it to you.

Their reply may well be interesting and informative. 

But what if they haven’t a clue? Then you can enlighten them, can’t you?

What’s that? You understand it, but you can’t quite put it into your own words? It’s “better felt than tellt”? Why don’t I just spell it out for you and have done with it..?


Where did I put my copy of J. Farrar’s “Biblical And Theological Dictionary” 1889 ed?

Hang on a minute...

Back in a bit.
