102. False Professors Solemnly Warned — Philippians 3:18-19

“…there are some of your members of churches who will one day be members of the pit.” – C.H.S.
It is sadly true that many who confess to know Jesus, don’t (Matthew 7:23-24). Many don’t even have a category for ‘false professors’ (I didn’t).  They assume everyone who has prayed some form of the ‘sinner’s prayer’, or ‘made a decision for Christ’, must be saved. I encourage you to let Spurgeon’s warning challenge your thinking.


“For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.”—Philippians 3:18, 19.

Main Points:
1. On account of their guilt – 6:31
2. On account of the ill effects of their conduct – 17:20
3. On account of their doom – 34:07

And while faithful, you will notice that the apostle [Paul] was, as every true minister should be, extremely affectionate. He could not bear to think that any of the members of the churches under his care should swerve from the truth, he wept while he denounced them; he knew not how to wield the thunderbolt with a tearless eye; he did not know how to pronounce the threatening of God with a dry and husky voice. No; while he spoke terrible things the tear was in his eye, and when he reproved sharply, his heart beat so high with love, that those who heard him denounce so solemnly, were yet convinced that his harshest words were dictated by affection.

There are among the professed followers of the humble Man of Galilee, men who strive to gain the topmost round of the ladder of this world; whose aim is, not to magnify Christ, but to magnify themselves at any hazard. It had been thought at one time that a Christian would be a holy, a humble, and contented man; but it is not so now-a-days. We have (Oh, shame, ye churches!) mere professors; men who are as worldly as the worldliest, and have no more of Christ’s Holy Spirit in them than the most carnal who never made a profession of the truth.

O sirs, there are some of your members of churches who will one day be members of the pit. We have some united with our churches who have passed through baptism and sit at our sacramental tables, who, while they have a name to live, are dead as corpses in their graves as to anything spiritual. It is an easy thing to palm yourself off for a godly man now-a-days. There is little self-denial, little mortification of the flesh, little love to Christ wanted. Oh, no. Learn a few religious hymns; get a few cant phrases, and you will deceive the very elect; enter into the church, be called respectable, and if you cannot make all believe you, you will yet smooth your path to destruction by quieting an uneasy conscience.

“The enemies of the cross of Christ” are Pharisaic professors, bright with the whitewash of outside godliness, whilst they are rotten within.

Be particular, my dear friends, be very particular that you do not dishonour the cause you profess to love, by living in sin and walking in iniquity.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

86. Unimpeachable Justice — Psalm 51:4

Having been convicted of murder, William Palmer was put to death on June 14th, 1856. The next morning, young Charles Spurgeon, reflecting on the events of the previous day, spoke on the perfect justice of God in condemning sinners.
The topic is far from pleasant, for Spurgeon speaks often of our deserved doom. I urge you to think of Jesus every time the miseries of hell are mentioned! For He suffered in our place on the cross, so that we might escape those miseries and enjoy Him forever.
Trust Him!


Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest,”—Psalm 51:4.


Main Points:
1. Condemnation of the believer – 7:00
2. Condemnation of the unbeliever – 28:50

When God the Holy Ghost in the soul passes sentence on the old man, and condemns it for its sins, there is felt most solemnly in the heart the great truth, that hell itself is but a rightful punishment for sin.

Ah! my dear friends, there may be some who rail at God’s justice; but no convinced sinner ever will. He sees God’s law in all its glorious holiness, and he smites his hand upon his breast, and he says, “O sinner that I am! that I ever could have sinned against such a reasonable law and such perfect commandments!” He sees God’s love towards him, and that cuts him to the very quick. He says, “Oh! that I should ever have spit on the face of that Christ who died for me! Wretch that I am, that I could ever have crowned that bleeding head with the thorns of my sins, which gave itself to slumber in the grave for my redemption!” Nothing cuts the sinner to the quick more than the fact, that he has sinned against a great amount of mercy. This indeed, makes him weep; and he says, “O Lord, seeing I have been so ungrateful, the direst doom thou canst ever sentence me to, or the fiercest punishment thou canst ever execute upon my head, would not be too heavy for the sins I have committed against thee.”

The sinner may in this world think that he can never by his sins by any possibility deserve hell; but he will not indulge that thought when he gets there. One of the miseries of hell will be that the sinner will feel that he deserves it all.
