The Callousness of the Gospel

By Brook Ardoin

Charles Spurgeon was the most popular, influential preachers of the Victorian Era. Pastoring the world’s largest church in London, he founded 66 ministries. He fought against U.S. slavery, China’s opium trade, and human trafficking. He was a writer and prolific author, and his quotes remain some of the most profound and well known within the Christian community to this day.

It is in one of his books he first wrote about what he called “the callousness of the Gospel”. Though I have not read this particular book, it was in a recent discussion of the passion of today’s church that this statement arose to describe what I have witnessed. If Spurgeon witnessed a callousness in God’s people during the 19th century, I can only presume to imagine what his thoughts would be concerning this dilemma in our 21st century.

The word “callous” in relation to this article means, “make hard; hardened; insensitive; indifferent; unsympathetic; feeling no emotion”.

About Tony Koretz

A dedicated musician and audio engineer with a passion for all things related to sound and music, with a desire to see these things used for the Kingdom Of God. I have given years to this pursuit and to improving my skills in these areas. Having worked as a tech in the audio side of television, music, voice over, sound effects, sound for video, and all manner of other audio recording, mixing and mastering projects; I began to apply my knowledge of these to the creating of the A Minute To Midnite show in 2015. All the music used in every AMTM Show has been written, played and recorded by me. I love being able to combine my gifts as a composer, musician and sound engineer, with the desire to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, along with a message of warning people to prepare for the End Time Events that are unfolding before us. The A Minute To Midnite show and running the website has pretty much become my full time occupation now.
