Did They Really Say That?
“Can any man tell me when the beginning was? Years ago we thought the beginning of this world was when Adam came upon it; but we have discovered that thousands of years before that God was preparing chaotic matter to make it a fit abode for man, putting races of creatures upon it, who might die and leave behind the marks of his handiwork and marvelous skill, before he tried his hand on man.”
Charles H. Spurgeon, “Election,” The New Park Street Pulpit 1 (1990): pg.318 [Sermon given in 1855]
Sad that a man so revered by Calvinists had such a low view of the Genesis record of Creation.
