“Our days are few, and are far better spent in doing good, than in disputing over matters which are, at best, of minor importance… our Churches suffer much from petty wars over abstruse points and unimportant questions…. Questions upon points wherein Scripture is silent; upon mysteries which belong to God alone; upon prophecies of doubtful interpretation; and upon mere modes of observing human ceremonials, are all foolish, and wise men avoid them. Our business is neither to ask nor answer foolish questions, but to avoid them altogether; and if we observe the apostle’s precept (Titus 3:8) to be careful to maintain good works, we shall find ourselves far too much occupied with profitable business to take much interest in unworthy, contentious, and needless strivings.” (Charles Spurgeon – Morning and Evening – November 19)
