I know there are some who say, “Well, I’ve given myself to the Lord, but I don’t intend to give myself to any church.” I say, “Now why not?” And they answer, “Because I can be just as good a Christian without it.” I say, “Are you quite clear about that? You can be as good a Christian by disobedience to your Lord’s commands as by being obedient? There’s a brick. What is the brick made for? It’s made to build a house. It is of no use for the brick to tell you that it’s just as good a brick while it’s kicking about on the ground by itself, as it would be as part of a house. Actually, it’s a good-for-nothing brick. So, you rolling stone Christians, I don’t believe that you’re answering the purpose for which Christ saved you. You’re living contrary to the life which Christ would have you live and you are much to blame for the injury you do.”
— Charles .H. Spurgeon
One thought on “Spurgeon on Being a Good-For-Nothing Brick”
I shall return to church when they quit celebrating and worshiping the Lord God with the pagan means of the Christ Mass and the Easter for this is a serious sin against God who says we are not to worship Him inthe same manner as the heathen do their gods. The tree and many of the traditions that Christians have adopted are occultic and will never be anything but vain to our beloved who will not be lowered to the status of other gods by man’s pagan/papist inventions. If they cannot see this in Scriptures, or they twist Scriptures to make these unlawful unholy days fine to celebrate then they are goats of which, as Tozer said, should not be joined together with. Better to worship at home/online then to worship with the goats. BTW, the only way anyone can break the Sabbath is to be without Christ. Assembling of ourselves together can be done outside of church as well.
