Spurgeon on reconciling election and "free will"

My dear brethren, I never reconcile two friends, never. These two doctrines are friends with one another; for they are both in God's Word, and I shall not attempt to reconcile them.


"But," says one, "there is a great deal of difficulty about them."

ANS: Will you tell me what truth there is that has no difficulty about it?

"But," says another "I do not see it."

ANS: Well I do not ask you to see it; I ask you to believe it.

Spurgeon, Sermon on Romans 9:13 in New Park Street Pulpit, Vol 5-6, page 120
