Why I Don’t Expect Everyone in My Church to Agree with Everything I Say

"When I review what I preached ten years ago, I find I would change a lot of what I said.

Christ's Resurrection and Our Newness of Life

By C. H. Spurgeon. Sermon 2197 delivered on Lord’s-day morning, March 29th, 1891 at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, Newington.
