Preaching On Trivial Issues . . . Spurgeon
By: Charles Haddon Spurgeon

spurgeon1"I know a minister whose shoe laces I am unworthy to unloose, whose preaching is often little better than sacred miniature painting - I might say holy trifling.

He is great upon the ten toes of the beast, the four faces of the cherubim, the mystical meaning of badgers' skins, and the typical bearings of the staves of the ark, and the windows of Solomon's Temple; but the sins of the businessmen, the temptations of the times, and the needs of the age, he scarcely ever touches upon.

Such preaching reminds me of a lion engaged in mouse hunting."

- Charles Haddon Spurgeon
