Spurgeon and the preaching of Hell

In light of the prevalence of "fluffy" one-sided preaching which dominated a-many-a pulpit nowadays, Charles Spurgeon had a little something to say to the men of his day. (cf. 2 Tim 4:3)

"Our dear Redeemer, whose lips are as lilies dropping sweet-smelling myrrh, in great tenderness of heart warned men of the sure result of their sins; and none used stronger or more alarming language than he did concerning the future of ungodly men. He knew nothing of that pretended sympathy which will rather let men perish than warn them against perishing. Such tenderness is merely selfishness excusing itself from a distasteful duty."
