Hypocrites! Get Out of the Church!

spurgeon pointing

I would say to you, members of this church, "Be holy!" Whatever you are, do seek to be holy. And if you will not be holy- if you have a mind to keep your sins- do us the favor to give up your profession. If you will have your sins, and go to hell, you can do it so much better outside the church than you can inside.

I cannot see why you must need to do Christ the double ill-turn to be his enemy, and yet profess to be his friend.

Get out of the church, you that are hypocrites!

– Charles Spurgeon, Our Position and Our Purpose, 2 Cor. 7:1
