Chuck Spurgeon is my Homeboy

  • It was Chuck Spurgeon who wrote the book of Hebrews.
  • Chuck Spurgeon is still planning his jihad on Ergun Caner & Liberty University.

  • A few of the early Puritans wanted Chuck Spurgeon to come preach, but most thought he was too extreme.
  • Most people breathe in and breathe out; Chuck Spurgeon breathes in and preaches out.
  • Chuck Spurgeon once found Jesus in the second chapter of 1 Chronicles.
  • Chuck Spurgeon once roundhouse exposited an Arminian out of John 5.40.
  • Chuck Spurgeon once preached on Election and ended up converting people. That's not a joke.
  • When Chuck Spurgeon said he was born an Arminian, he was only kidding.
  • Chuck Spurgeon left the Baptist Union with a roundhouse sermon.
  • The last earthquake that happened in California was when Chuck Spurgeon found out that Rick Warren has a framed Spurgeon sermon on his office wall.
  • The reason Word-of-Faith preachers own private jets is because they're trying to stay away from Chuck Spurgeon.
  • Chuck Spurgeon is suing several Emergent writers for the term “grace and peace” which he claims are trademarked names for his right and left arms.
  • Phillip Yancey's book Where is God When it Hurts? was written after Chuck Spurgeon got a hold of him.
  • Most people breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon-dioxide; Chuck Spurgeon breathes in Law and breathes out Gospel.

  • Chuck Spurgeon once gave a roundhouse expository message which knocked liberals through windows...by reading the Sword and the Trowel.
  • Chuck Spurgeon didn't die, he's just waiting.
  • The reason Calvin didn't leave Geneva wasn't because he took seriously Farel's threats of Divine retribution, but because he took seriously Chuck Spurgeon's threats of Spurgeon retribution.
  • Chuck Spurgeon built the wall around Jerusalem in Nehemiah. With his eyes closed. And his hands tied around his back. With a sword in one hand and a trowel in the other.
  • Chuck Spurgeon once preached on the certainty and freeness of divine grace from John 6.37 and ended up making both Arminians and Hyper-Calvinists angry. That's not a joke either.

  • They once tried to carve Chuck Spurgeon’s face into a graven image, but the granite wasn't hard enough for his beard. Oh; and the craftsmen were struck dead.
  • Once Chuck Spurgeon and John Piper held a contest to see who had the most of the five points of Calvinism. Chuck Spurgeon won. By eight.
  • Chuck Spurgeon has two settings: exposit and exhort.

I named my son Haddon Spurgeon and I am an Arminian. Isn't that funny! And I am serious!
