Charles Spurgeon on Discernment

“Discernment is not knowing the difference between right and wrong. It is knowing the difference between right and almost right.”

—C.H. Spurgeon

    This is one of those statements that is both simple and profound. The devil likes to mix his lies with just enough of the truth to make it look plausible. We rarely fall for the out and out bald-faced lie, but those half-truths can be so deceptive.

    Great truth to this quote!

    And Spurgeon's keen discernment exceeds that of many:

    Wonder how he would refute the saying "all truth is God's truth"? I know this is a lie, but so many are falling for it and looking at other sources rather than the Word of God. Man's "truth" changes over time, but God's never does. Also God's truth can only be discerned by the Holy Spirit. God's ways and thoughts are so much higher than our own! Just because it works doesn't mean it is from God! Would have loved to hear Charles Spurgeon. The next best thing is going on those sites that read them.
