Charles Spurgeon on Water Butts


"He is great upon the ten toes of the beast, the four faces of the cherubim, the mystical meaning of badgers' skins, and the typical bearings of the staves of the ark, and the windows of Solomon's temple: but the sins of business men, the temptations of the times, and the needs of the age, he scarcely ever touches upon. Such preaching reminds me of a lion engaged in mouse-hunting, or a man-of-war cruising after a lost water-butt" --Charles Spurgeon (from Lectures to My Students)

Hey, if you don't know the meaning of badgers' skins...well...I don't know where you went to Bible college!

Is a badger even mentioned in the Bible?

Classic quote!!! Awesome.
