If my sermons kept people from reading the Bible for themselves, I would like to see the whole stock in a blaze and burned to ashes! But if they serve as fingerposts, pointing to the Scriptures and saying, “Read this, and this, and this,” then I am thankful to have printed them. But if they keep you from your Bibles, burn them, burn them, and burn them! Do not let them overlay the Scriptures, but lie beneath them, for that is their proper place. Keep you first to God’s revealed word.
Charles Spurgeon, Sermon: “How to Become Full of Joy”
