Charles Spurgeon on Discernment


  1. This shall be an infallible test to you concerning anyone’s ministry.
    If it is man-praising, and man-honouring, it is not of God.
  2. Satan knows very well that if he comes in black he will be discovered, but if he puts on the garb of an angel of light, then men will think he comes from God, and so will be deceived. “By their fruits ye shall know them.” If they give you not the gospel, if they exalt not Christ, if they bear not witness to salvation through the precious blood, if they do not lift up Jesus Christ as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, have nothing to do with them, speak as they may.
  3. Men go after novel and false doctrines because they do not really know the truth.
  4. Discernment is not knowing the difference between right and wrong.
    It is knowing the difference between right and almost right.
  5. It has been well remarked by a great writer, that he never knew a man who held any great theological error, who did not also hold a doctrine which diminished the depravity of man
