Spurgeon, autobiographical look at UNconditional election

“I am quite certain that, if God had not chosen me, I should never have chosen Him; and I am sure He chose me before I was born, or else He never would have chosen me afterwards; and He must have elected me for reasons unknown to me, for I never could find any reason in myself why He should have looked upon me with special love.” ~ Charles Spurgeon

One thought on “Spurgeon, autobiographical look at UNconditional election

  1. Great quote. Here we see the greatness of regeneration explained according to the context Titus 3:5 gives it, as something the one who is saved looks back on, honoring the act of God upon us.

    This is very different than the so-called evangelist assuming that the gospel can be loaded up with any works-demands whatsoever as conditions of justification, because whoever is regenerate will comply with them.
