Calvinism is the Gospel

A nice summation from a master of the pulpit

CALVINISM IS THE GOSPEL, AND NOTHING ELSE
– Charles Spurgeon

“And I will go as far as Martin Luther, in
that strong assertion of his, where he says,
‘If any man doth ascribe of salvation, even
the very least, to the free will of man, he
knoweth nothing of grace, and he hath not
learnt Jesus Christ aright.’ It may seem a
harsh sentiment; but he who in his soul
believes that man does of his own free will
turn to God, cannot have been taught of
God, for that is one of the first principles
taught us when God begins with us, that
we have neither will nor power, but that
He gives both; that he is ‘Alpha and Omega’
in the salvation of men.”

-C.H. Spurgeon, from the sermon:
“Free Will A Slave” (1855)
